Sinkhole dirt.

If the commemorative Corvette Cave-in smashed penny isn't enough, they also sell jars of sinkhole dirt for $10 in the gift shop.

The sink hole situation adds to the intrigue. Cool place.

Sinkhole wreck.

Corvette Museum

In February 2014 the Corvette Museum Sky Dome exhibit floor collapsed into a giant underground cavern. Eight of the most valuable Corvettes in the world were destroyed. One was worth over a million dollars prior to the cave-in.

Pretty cool place. Took about 90 minutes to get through. Sinkhole exhibit was interesting!
