Starting in a few weeks the National Corvette Museum will be the new guide for public tours of the GM Bowling Green Assembly Plant, where the Corvette is exclusively built. The change will allow for more frequent tours of the facility, with starts every 15 minutes from 8:30 AM to 1:45 PM.
“We are in the business to build cars,” said GM Bowling Green Assembly Plant Manager Kai Spande. “The National Corvette Museum is in the hospitality and tourism business and currently lead a number of tour programs in the plant, including R8C Museum Delivery, Experience, VIP Tours, Photo Albums and Buyers’ Tours. It was only fitting to add the public tour program to their list of offerings.”
The tours are available during weekdays, and typically last about one hour. Cost of each ticket will be $10 for adults and $5 for ages 10 to 16. If you opt to purchase a combo ticket for a tour of both the Plant and the Museum, the cost will be $16, reflecting a savings of $4. NCM says tickets are limited, but you can purchase your tickets online and plan ahead to ensure your visit.
Something to note is that the tour itself is a one-mile walk, and no cell phones, cameras, crutches, purses, backpacks, or electronic devices are permitted. For more information, or to purchase your tickets, visit www.corvetteplanttours.com.
