Trip to the Creation Museum

Same Facts but Different Views...Why?

While visiting family in the States, I was able to take a trip to the “controversial” Creation Museum in Florence, KY (near Cincinnati). It was extremely crowded. We waited in line for 45 minutes to get in after a very long drive, but it was well worth the wait! We started off our tour with the planetarium. It was truly awesome. The computer programming was very cool. It was the most exciting part of the museum in my opinion.

animatronicsThe main part of the museum presents a “walk through history,” where the visitor is presented with the Seven C’s of history: Creation, Corruption, Catastrophe, Confusion, Christ, Cross, Consummation. The animatronics were impressive, and the fact that it was designed by a former Universal Studios exhibit director really shows.

I don’t really have anything to add to what people have already said about it. One sad thing, though, is that there have to be armed guards present to prevent hateful people from damaging the property. I could see evidence of vandalism on some of the displays already, even though I visited about a month after the official opening. Tolerance must only be required of Christians. I guess the threat of terrorism due to the concentration of thousands of visitors in one spot makes them necessary, too.

If you’re in the area–and even if you’re not–I highly recommend a visit. You can spend an entire day at the museum. They have a cafeteria and a good-sized park outside. It opens at 10 a.m., so get there early and make sure you can get tickets to the planetarium (apparently they sell out pretty quickly). I got there at 9:50 a.m. and there was already a huge line, but I’d say that the crowds will die down after a few months. If you’re going to stay at a hotel in the area, be sure and check out the Plan Your Visit section of the website and ask the hotel for the Creation Museum rates. My family and I got to stay at a nice hotel for much less than the normal rate.

Even evolutionists should find the museum interesting. It’s so spectacularly done that you can visit and examine the other side of the debate without being bored out of your mind. I’ve even read of some people getting to “debate” with the staff. So what are you waiting for?

  1. Imgaine…you are a business man with eye for opportunity. You pick up on the ‘science vs creationism debate’ and think about how you can make money from it. Your idea? develop a Creationism Museum and watch the dollars roll in. You brilliant idea gets them both ways.

    a) those who ‘believe’ come to reinforce the belief

    b) those that don’t come to look at the ‘stupidity’

    Neither of these groups are aware of the ‘meta-gullibility’ they have succumbed to!!…They are there simply to bust the sales forecast of your business plan…


    Coming soon to a country near you..Gullibility Theme Park…suggestions for attractions on post card to…lol

    Yes, of course. No one is ever sincere in their beliefs, and everyone is in it for the money.
