Where are we going today?
With children playing and dinosaurs roaming near Eden's Rivers, and Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden itself, the Bible really has come to life at the Creation Museum.
This Kentucky museum is 75,000 sq feet that brings the pages of the Bible to life. Not only are the characters and animals that are found on the pages placed in familiar settings, but there is also a host of other fun activities for the kids to enjoy!
First, let's explore the exhibits! There are so many great places to explore. Did you know that they have a world class dinosaur skeleton? Yep! The Allosaurus calls the Creation Museum home, and is one of the best preserved Allosaurus skulls ever preserved - pretty cool!
Kids can gain an understainding of other cultures with Chinese artwork, or they can get among the creepy crawlies that can be found! Did you know one insect actually weighs almost half a pound? Eek!
Kids can see exhibits of the past, with coal mines, fossil displays, and even a dinosaur skeleton under excavation. They also have exhibits detailing why we have different views about our origins.
Of course, there are exhibits about the Bible too, from Adam and Eve's creation, to the great flood, voyage of the ark, and kids can discover what natural selection can do!
But exhibits are not the only thing in the Creation Museum! There is a Planetarium for all those stargazers, a petting zoo with sweet animals to give kids a great animal encounter, and even camel rides!
With workshops and events, and a botanical garden to enjoy, there is SO much for the whole family at this fascinating museum.
