National Corvette Museum creates interactive exhibit to commemorate sinkhole

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- It's been two years since a sinkhole at the National Corvette Museum swallowed eight cars. The sinkhole may be gone, but there's a new way to experience it.

Museum officials say the sinkhole was so popular that they created an exhibit for it. A press conference was held this morning to show off the new Corvette Cave-In exhibit in Bowling Green. The interactive exhibit will highlight the collapse, and will use pieces of rock and electronics to recreate the 30-foot sinkhole. 

As for the actual sinkhole, that was later filled in, and two of the eight cars have now been restored. 

At one point, people could actually go into a room with the sinkhole, and visitors from across the world were stopping by the museum to see it. The Corvette Museum saw an increase in tourism during that time. 

The exhibit chronicles the story of the sinkhole. It will also explain to people how sinkholes form, giving them a better understanding.
