To help celebrate 225 years of transportation in the state of Kentucky, the National Corvette Museum will host a very special exhibit. Dubbed “Kentucky: 225 Years on the Move,” the exhibit will take museum goers back in time through transportation milestones.
In 1792, 225 years ago, Kentucky was officially admitted as the 15th state in the United States—previously it was a part of Virginia. Throughout time, many transportation milestones were achieved in the state of Kentucky and the NCM plans to have many artifacts on loan from various other museums for the exhibit.
“The exhibit breaks history down into three 75-year increments and we highlight transportation on land, air and water,” said Derek Moore, Curator for the National Corvette Museum. “Corvette plays a significant role in the automotive industry for Kentucky, so we thought an exhibit that focused on transportation would be a great fit.”
The exhibit will open on August 28, 2017, and run through spring of 2018 as part of a lengthy birthday party for the bluegrass state.
