Corvette Museum Opens New KidZone

By Melissa Warren | 

What was once a storage space at the National Corvette museum is now a space for children to get in on the Vette fun.

Step One donated some of the toys, including a bed modeled after the Corvette Z06 where kids can have a drive-in movie type experience.

The area also lets them learn to perform simple maintenance service on a car.

The museum held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new KidZone today.

"The museum has always had corvettes that are great to look at, but you can't touch them. We wanted to add a space for kids where they are encouraged to touch, do hands-on activities and learn about cars in the process. So we had some unused storage area that we decided to clean out and renovate, and turn into a permanent kid zone," said National Corvette Museum Marketing Manager Kate Frassinelli.

The KidZone will be open to all museum visitors when the museum is open, and is free with your admission.
