Corvette Museum Attendance Skyrockets

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. -- An important decision is being made tomorrow regarding the National Corvette Museum. The Board of Directors will meet to decide how to proceed with the giant sinkhole that formed in February, and swallowed eight classic cars.

Board members from across the country will be in Bowling Green to discuss repairing options, pricing, and the sinkhole's impact on tourism. Since the incident, museum officials say attendance has skyrocketed.

"May, for example, was almost double the number of visitors over May of 2013; if we continue that trend through June, July and August, then overall, our visitation increase will be more than 50% for the summer," museum spokesperson, Katie Frassinelli, said.

Tourists of all ages are invited to visit the museum, but children must be at least 8 years old to enter the "Skydome" showroom. If the board chooses to repair the sinkhole, construction is scheduled to begin in September.
