A Peek Into the Creation Museum


Today we enjoyed spending a few hours at the
new Creation Museum. We were given a few guest passes,
by a generous friend, so we
were able to get in to the museum and planetarium
cost free. To my far away blog-readers, it's
definitely worth the trip. I can not begin to tell you how impressed I
was by everything we saw here. It was also so
refreshing to go to a large museum such as this,
yet know we were mostly surrounded by Christians. Typically
in a museum, I have to explain to the kids they cannot believe
everything they read or hear. In this museum, it
was nice just to RELAX and know everything they
were seeing and hearing was the truth and
based on the Word of God. It was
an awesome feeling. Sitting through a couple of the the presentations,
I met a lady from Chicago and one from New Jersey.
So word must be spreading and people are coming! In the parking
lot, just near our van, we saw license plates
from Colorado, Florida, Georgia,
New Jersey, Alabama and New Mexico...very exciting.

The "ghetto"...a representation of where
sin can lead. I loved this display
because it was so realistic. Maybe I felt
right at home....lol!


Notice the "homeless sign!


Outside, the grounds are landscaped
beautifully .

the 11th commandment!



Adam and Eve scenes always crack me up...Eve is always seen
with her hair strategically placed.


Cain and Abel...one of many very realistic scenes.

We spent around 3 hours and were not able to see everything, There
were also two theatre shows we
didn't have time to see either. Guess that means we will
be back! :)

The museum has so much more than I expected! I can't wait to go and take the kids! I know what you mean about needing to explain to them that they can't believe everything they read etc. Mine are in public schools so we often have this conversation. I think this museum will help teach so much to my "science minded" children! They have no trouble believing in God and the Bible, however, some teachers have a way of trying to twist things so that we need to frequently go over things again.

Do you think a three year old would enjoy the museum? We are definitely going to take the tour, but I was unsure if anything there other than the dinosours would hold Bryson's attention.

Wow, I would love to come and see the museum. Just don't know if I should be too far away from home right now - been having some contractions, probably just Braxton's but I want to be careful. Maybe after the baby.
