TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - The Terre Haute Children's Museum spent Monday in a tricky situation.
It's part of a new exhibit.
Hulman And Company donated its Clabber Girl stock car replica to the museum.
After the donation, a father son-duo modified it - so kids can see what it's like to be the driver.
Here's the problem: the museum doesn't have a freight elevator.
A forklift was the only way to get the car onto the second floor.
“Since the home was going to be on the front side of the building, it was going to be easier for us to just take the windows out and lift the car up using heavy equipment, and I know that doesn’t sound like the easy way, in this situation that was the easier way for us to get that car up there,” Lynn Hughes from the Children’s Museum said.
The museum is closed right now for cleaning.
Administrators plan to reopen on September 17th.
