National Corvette Museum opens Cave-In Exhibit on Two Year Anniversary of Museum Sinkhole

 

National Corvette MuseumBowling Green, KY – Two years ago, on February 12th, 2014, many people across the globe woke up to some startling news – a sinkhole had opened up inside the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and eight Corvettes were laying at the bottom of it.

Fortunately, the cars and building were the only things damaged as it occurred in the early morning hours before anyone was in the Museum. The story captivated those who watched it, and while the Museum initially planned to put the past behind them, the interest in the sinkhole and damaged Corvettes was undeniable.

Alley Poet’s Pen: For the Troops…

 

Alley Poet's PenNashville, TN – Once, in another life, I found myself seated atop the rear of a convertible Corvette in a Veteran’s Day parade, cruising 5MPH down the streets of the township where I was an elected councilwoman. I’d been called up last minute (just that morning) by a fellow councilman colleague, as though I was to know of the tradition that existed each year.

There would be a program of festivities and a ceremony set up at the local park. As we waved and smiled at our neighbors and friends, I saw the councilman pull out two typed sheets of paper from the breast pocket of his suit. When I asked what it was, he said, “You know we’re making speeches.”

National Corvette Museum Sinkhole Viewing Offered This Summer, Fate to be Decided June 25th

 

Guests offered opportunity to enter Skydome for close look at sinkhole

National Corvette MuseumBowling Green, KY – On February 12th the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY was handed a lemon… a 40′ wide by 60′ deep lemon to be exact. What the Museum did, in turn, was even more unexpected than the sinkhole itself. The Museum turned the misfortune into a tourist attraction.

“We started with a Plexiglas viewing window so guests could see the construction going on inside the Skydome, and eventually the recovery of the Corvettes,” said Katie Frassinelli, Marketing and Communications Manager at the Museum. “We always had one web cam available inside the Skydome, and due to the growing interest and popularity we added two more so our online visitors could get additional angles to view what was going on.”
