We just came back from the Answers in Genesis‘ Creation Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky. It’s completely awesome!
It was really great to go to a museum and, for once, not have to explain to my kids that everything they were seeing was being filtered through an atheistic evolutionary bias. The exhibits were high-quality, taking us through the 7 C’s of Creationism: Creation, Corruption, Catastrophe, Confusion, Christ, Cross & Consummation.
It’s hard to say what my favorite part was. The Stargazer’s Planetarium is certainly at the top of the list. And I’m an undeniable bibliophile, so I spent a good part of the time in the Dragon Bookstore. The displays were top-notch, especially the Garden of Eden and Noah’s Ark. The dinosaurs were pretty realistic and the fossil collection was impressive. I also liked the “Men in White” presentation with it’s rumbling seats, rushing winds and whatnot.
You’re gonna be shocked, but I reccomend a visit, of course. I’m going back.
Oh, and Prepare To Believe.

I have plans to be attending a conference near Pittsburgh, PA on September 27 and hoped to take the family to the museum as part of our trip.
If I reserved lodging in the vicinity for two consecutive nights, that would give us a full day to enjoy the museum. Is one (1) day enough time?
One day is plenty [well, at least it was when I went; they’ve added things since then], but you’ll find yourself wanting to go back all-too-soon.
I too have been to the Creation Museum. It is very well done and answers a lot of questions if you are prepared to believe. I also am a Video Conference Coordinator and arrange and conduct video conferences using AiG materials. In attempting to line up conferences, I find a situation scarier than the atheists with their shallow rhetoric. That is the confused pastors out there who don’t know what they believe when it comes to origins. They are fence riders extraordinary. Many Christians are open to AiG materials, however the biggest obstacle seems to be the “leadership”. They are afraid to take a stand and to lead. I know there are many that will take a stand, but it is upsetting to see the number that have no interest, as it might be a bit controversial. However, I am gratified as to the people who see the material and are hungry for more. I will be attending a big AiG conference in Branson, MO this month.
