That is the slogan used by The Creation Museum located in Petersburg, KY, just outside Cincinnati, Ohio. We visited there for the first time this past weekend, and it is a pretty amazing place. It is a Christian environment, and the purpose of the museum and presentations is to offer a Christian perspective on the origin of the universe and everything in it. We spent nine hours there viewing displays of everything from Adam & Eve in the Garden of Eden to Noah building his ark, to dozens of fossils from all over the world and listening to several presentations.
My favorite presentations were in the Stargazers Planetarium. Through high definition digital technology, we were able to sit back in comfortable reclining chairs and view the sun, stars, moon, planets, the Milky Way and beyond!
I don't have a scientific bone in my body, but this was an interesting place to visit! I give the originators of this museum high marks for daring to present a controversial and counter-cultural viewpoint to the general public. The exhibits were of world-class quality, the environment was friendly, and the presentations were outstanding.
Here are some of our pictures:

can stroll or eat a picnic lunch...
The Museum has a nice cafe on the main floor and a snack shop on the lower level. There is also a fairly large book store/gift shop. If you are anywhere near this area, it is well worth a visit. We found everything to be state-of-the-art, clean, and well maintained. Security seemed good, employees were friendly and helpful, it is was an enjoyable and faith-building experience all the way around. Prices of admission, hours of operation, and other information is available on their web site: (www.creationmuseum.org).
Plan to spend an entire day, and prepare to believe!
