The National Corvette Museum, a 110,000-square-foot facility, is located a quarter-mile from where Corvettes have been manufactured since mid-1981. The sinkhole apparently occurred at the Sky Dome, which features 30 unique Corvettes, including the only 1983 Corvette in existence. Hopefully it still exists.

The museum remains open, although the Sky Dome is closed until further notice.
