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.”
