BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- Construction crews and equipment are active daily at the National Corvette Museum to prepare to get the cars out of the sinkhole and restore the Skydome.

The museum has built a plexiglass wall between the Skydome and the museum so tourists can see the sinkhole.

There is also a television showing live footage of the hole from a sky-cam.

One tourist says she and her husband own a Corvette, love to tour the museum, and they were sad when they heard the news of the collapse.

"To see this, first of all it's so quick to have it already under construction, so I'm really amazed by that. Although, it's so sad to see all the cars no longer here, but I'm anxious to see what they look like when they come out one by one and how much damage occurred to them," said Kathy Taylor.

Taylor, along with other tourists will get to see that damage this summer.

The museum plans to display the cars "as is" once they are pulled from the sinkhole.

After that, the cars will be shipped to Michigan for repairs.
