Update: National Corvette Museum open, NCM Motorsports Park closed as Kentucky digs out from devastating tornado

The National Corvette Museum was spared and has reopened its doors days after southern Kentucky was devastated by an unprecedented tornado.

The National Corvette Museum’s Facebook page stated its facilities were “spared from significant damage,” in the storm, which devastated many surrounding areas in southern Kentucky.

The Museum reopened it doors for business on Monday the 13th after power was restored. The Museum stresses that would-be visitors “to only travel when safe to do so.”

The NCM Motorsports Park was not spared from the wrath of Mother Nature though. According to the Corvette Museum the circuit, “sustained significant damage to the property,” and has since been forced to cancel all future events until further notice including the holiday themed "Twinkle at the Track" event.

The same tornado that hit the NCM and NCM Motorsports Park and leveled a large portion of southern Kentucky, also wreaked havoc on the GM Bowling Green Assembly plant which has left the plant closed as of December 13th.
