Those of you visiting Bowling Green and the National Corvette Museum in April for the Bash will be among the first to see the newly revamped Admission and Gateway areas there. Construction began January 2nd and is slated to be completed in late March or early April.
Due to the continued growth of the Museum, the NCM staff needed a bigger area to welcome incoming guests. Removing the wall between the Gateway and Nostalgia areas adjacent to the Chevrolet Theater will free up space for visitors as well as 5-6 more display Corvettes. Only 2 cars will be relocated during the project and the Chevrolet Theater will remain open. Once completed, the new area will tell the early story of the Corvette prior to its 1953 debut.
“As interest in the Museum has continued to grow over the years, so has the need for space to more thoroughly tell the back story of the iconic car. Thanks to donations by many of members and supporters, we’re able to do much needed remodels like this one,” said the NCM’s Katie Ellison. “Our goal is to refresh a few key areas of the Museum just in time for our 25th Anniversary Celebration.”
In the 2-minute video from the BG Daily News, Katie walks us through this new exciting project at the museum.
The Admission and Gateway remodel is part a plan to update some key areas of the museum prior to the 25th Anniversary celebration coming up in September.
Join us at the Bash in April and you can take in the improvements firsthand.
