National Corvette Museum to open sinkhole exhibit

Posted: Updated:

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) -- A new exhibit at the National Corvette Museum will allow visitors to experience a sinkhole collapse up close and personal.

The Daily News reports the 1,000-square-foot "Corvette Cave-in!: The Skydome Sinkhole Experience" exhibit will use 3-D, pieces of rock and other electronics to give visitors an interactive experience.

The exhibit will open next month on the two-year anniversary of the 30-foot sinkhole that struck the museum on Feb. 12, 2014 and swallowed eight Corvettes.

Museum spokeswoman Katie Frassinelli says visitors will be able to walk through the interactive exhibit which will detail the collapse and its aftermath. It will be located in the corridor that leads to the museum's Skydome.

The exhibit was originally built in Florida by Creative Arts Unlimited and will be reconstructed at the museum.
