Opening its door in May of 2007 the Kentucky's Creation Museum is a 70,000 square-foot institution dedicated to presenting an account of the origins of the universe according to the very literal, creationist perspective of the Book of Genesis. Whether you're interested in walking through the pages of 'God's Word' (equipped with life-size dinosaurs!) or enjoying a family-friendly picnic in the recreated Garden of Eden there's plenty of activities for you to explore your inner-Creationist.
The museum boasts 160 exhibits documenting Earth's history, asserting that all life forms were created 6,000 years ago over a six-day period. Take a minute to explore the re-creation of Noah's Ark work-site (again, with dinosaurs!) or watch some fantastic 'Theater Presentations' such as "Men in White", "Six Days of Creation" or, my personal favorite, "Dinosaurs and Dragons".
According to the founder, Ken Ham: "One of the main reasons wer moved there [Petersburg, Kentucky] was because we are within one hours flight of 69 percent of America's population." So, if you ever find yourself wondering what to do in northernKentucky by all means stop by this state-of-the-art Creationist shrine.
