NCM Planning to Add Replica Sinkhole Exhibit
“It’ll be called sensorama. The guests will enter the room and it will simulate what it would have been like if you were in the cave when the sinkhole happened.”
The sound of machinery clacking in this video is proof that restoring the Skydome at the National Corvette Museum is really underway. And if you sense a bit of sarcasm in my “really” comment, you should because so many of the plans surrounding the museum have been up in the air until recently.
So, maybe we jumped the gun a bit when reporting that the National Corvette Museum had figured out what the plans were for the sinkhole because now, like a one-to-four skip-shift, they’re switching gears.
After weeks of speculation, the National Corvette Museum seems to be set on partially filling the sinkhole with plans to build a bridge over part of the thing.
Personally, I’ve had a tough enough time swallowing the idea that some of the damaged Corvettes might be left on display there in Kentucky, but preserving the sinkhole for a few extra ticket sales seems a bit much.
