When life gives your lemons, you make lemonade. Or, when a sinkhole swallows a handful of preciously rare Corvettes, you make the best of it. That’s what the National Corvette Museum has done throughout the entire process of its sinkhole disaster.
Following the disaster, retrieval and restoration of the priceless Corvettes, the NCM actual turned the massive sinkhole into an attraction itself before beginning the construction process to fill the gaping hole within the Skydome facility.
Following its repair, the NCM announced it would create a sinkhole experience for museum visitors to relive the events that shocked the museum, and we’re quickly approaching its debut day.
The NCM has announced the sinkhole exhibit will officially open on February 12, the second anniversary of disaster. “Corvette Cave-In: The Skydome Sinkhole” will feature videos, photos, information and artifacts from the sinkhole disaster to educate and entertain museum-goers.
The NCM will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony the same day at 10 a.m. central time to honor the new exhibit. Admission will be free for museum members, while guests will still be required to pay an entrance fee. If you can’t make it, the NCM will also stream the ceremony live on Periscope.
