It was the morning of February 12, 2014 that changed everything for the National Corvette Museum. Just before 6:00 am, a large sinkhole opened up inside the Museum’s Skydome, swallowing eight Corvettes and leaving a hole roughly forty feet wide by 40 feet deep.
Since that moment, we’ve been following the Museum’s progress as it first worked to rescue the Great Eight Corvettes before turning its focus to repairing and restoring the concrete floor.
After about 15 months of work, the National Corvette Museum held a ribbon-cutting ceremony on September 3, 2015 to celebrate the reopening of the Skydome.
Today, the Great Eight Corvettes have been reunited back inside the Skydome. The 2009 Corvette ZR1 and the newly restored 1 Millionth Corvette have taken their place beside the six still-damaged Corvettes while the World’s Only 1983 Corvette is displayed on the other side of the room.
To show just how massive that hole was as well as the amazing efforts of the construction team to repair the facility, we have another time lapse video showing the reconstruction of the Skydome in about three minutes.
Thanks again to all the workers and volunteers who helped the Corvette Museum during this time and we look forward to getting up the NCM and checking out the restored Skydome on our next visit.
