This will be a rain or shine event.
In case of bad weather, daily drivers are welcome. It’s worth the trip.
$15 for Club members and Seniors
To expedite entrance into the museum, we are requesting that all admission be paid in advance.
Please make your checks payable to Club Corvette of Connecticut.
Upon arrival, the museum will provide us with a roped-off parking area. They have also agreed to give us “early bird” access to the museum by allowing us to enter 1 hour early.
There are over 75 museum-quality cars for us to see. The museum is broken up into distinct themed displays: Corvette, Ford, Shelby, Mopar, American Muscle – then and now, World Cars, and Finned cars (Cadillacs, Chevys, etc.). Everyone is welcome to try their skill in the driving simulator. There are 8 simulators, and we are allowed up to 5 minutes each person, so everyone should have an opportunity to test their skills.
A group lunch has not been planned, so take your time at the museum and once you have completed your tour you can choose from 4 restaurants that the Museum recommended or anywhere else you may choose to go. There are no sidewalks on the roads by the museum so walking to restaurants is not an option. You will have to drive to each of the restaurants. The restaurants are listed below.
