I recently had the chance to make it to Answers in Genesis’ Creation Museum in Petersburg Kentucky (seven miles west of Cincinnati OH.). It was well worth the trip. It took a full day to go through the museum and we could have stayed longer. The museum focuses on creation, but also includes lots of information from creation up to present day including Adam and Eve, Noah’s flood, Abraham, Jesus, the printing press, and more.
There are many video presentations throughout the museum. Some of them are shown in their own theater, including one big special effects theater that includes rain, lightning, and wind. Others are shown along with the exhibits.
One of the main focuses of the museum is Earth science with an impressive explanation as to why the Earth is the way it is today. There are lots of emphasis on geology, fossils, and the flood of Noah.
There are many life-size dinosaur models located throughout the museum. There is a video in a theater room that talks about dragon legends, and explains when the dinosaurs lived and what happened to them.
There is a life-size construction of Noah’s Ark with animatronic workers building the ark. The model of the ark is around 45 feet high and 20 feet long. You can walk around the ark and see the inside. I liked the technology they show as possible methods used to build the ark. There are several models and cross-sections of the ark with videos that explain the flood.
There are many models, posters, and videos that give scientific explanations of Earth’s geology. There are many fossils of fish and animals that were buried rapidly. There are two fossils of dinosaur footprints from the Paluxy River. There are several models of landscapes including the Grand Canyon.
Outside there is a botanical garden and a petting zoo that includes a Zorse (cross between a Zebra and a Horse) and a Zonkey (cross between a Zebra and a Donkey).
There are three food venues and a very nice gift shop that includes many books and videos.
The Creation Museum is very informative and well worth the trip. I highly recommend making a visit to Answers in Genesis’ Creation Museum.
