On Monday, June 9, the National Corvette Museum welcomed its three-millionth visitor since the facility opened in 1994.

Brandon Newton of White Horse, Tennessee, was the lucky individual. He was accompanied by his friend, Amy Myers, of Nashville, Tennessee.

Museum staff were crowded into the lobby to celebrate the occasion. When he came through, the staff cheered and announced the milestone over the facility’s public address system. 

The two had planned to visit the museum the week before, but due to work obligations, their visit was delayed. As the three-millionth visitor, Brandon received free admission to the Museum that day, a one-year membership to the Museum, gift certificates to use at the Corvette Store, and a commemorative brick from the Flint plant, where Corvettes were assembled in 1953.
