Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear Participates in Simulator Ribbon Cutting
Gov. Steve Beshear joined local officials on Tuesday to open the Museum's new educational driving simulator theater - a learning tool designed to instruct visitors on realistic driving situations.
“We cannot stress the importance of responsible driving enough,” Gov. Beshear said. “These simulators can teach drivers how to correct mistakes virtually, within a safe environment without the potential consequences of actual crashes. I applaud the Corvette Museum for taking the lead on this safety priority."
Visitors to the Museum can sign-up for a 15-minute session on a simulator with paid general admission. Read more about the ribbon cutting on our blog!
