National Corvette Museum will keep sinkhole as an attraction

National Corvette Museum wants to keep portion of sinkhole that swallowed cars on exhibit open as a new attraction

The National Corvette Museum made headlines earlier this year when a massive sinkhole opened up under the floor of the museum and swallowed a handful of rare and expensive Corvette models. The museum had three options for dealing with the sinkhole after the cars were removed from the hole.

One of the options was to completely repair the sinkhole and replace the floor making it as if the incident never happened. The second option was to leave the sinkhole as it is. The third option, and the one that the museum chose, was to repair portions of the sinkhole and keep the remainder of the sinkhole open as a tourist attraction.

 

With this plan, the museum will keep a portion of the sinkhole open measuring 25-feet x 45-feet and 30-feet deep. Before the plan is official, the museum board wants information on if cars on display in the museum might be affected adversely by leaving the sinkhole open.
