The National Corvette Museum Reopens Today


With safety precautions in place, the National Corvette Museum is opening its doors again on Monday after a three-month absence.

The time off has been well spent by NCM officials, and visitors will be able to see two completely remodeled galleries and one new and one refreshed exhibit.

“We kicked off renovations last November,” says Museum Director of Collections / Curator, “and have been hard at work on the new E. Pierce Marshall Memorial Performance Gallery ever since.”

Moore says past visitors will be impressed with the upgrades, “and for those who have yet to visit, they’ll be equally impressed by technology as advanced as the car it celebrates.”

The Marshall Gallery features Pierce Jr.’s C7.R in the center of the room, complemented by high-tech upgrades like digital projection, interactive touch screens with artifact display cases, 180-degree video footage, and, of course, impressive cars.

The renovation is “extremely timely,” according to Pierce Jr., who sponsored the exhibit in honor of his late father. He believes younger people will enjoy the more interactive nature of the exhibit, ensuring “future generations will be able to learn how unique Corvette is in America’s car culture and its racing history.”

Visitors starting Monday will also be able to see the key vehicles that built the foundation for the new mid-engine 2020 Corvette, including Corvette Indy, a C8, and the XP-987 GT recently acquired by the fundraising
