The reason that Rebecca, Bonnie and I paused in our travels to worship with the Florence Church of Christ on the Lord’s Day was because we were planning on touring the Creation Museum in Petersburg, KY on Monday. For a long time, we had talked about stopping by the Creation Museum, but we had not done so previously. I hesitate both to take the time and to spend the money.
Monday was Memorial Day, and to my surprise, because I am a veteran, my admission was free! That was a good thing! We began our visit and ended our visit to the Creation Museum by walking through the botanical gardens. We had the benefit of a sunshiny day with a gentle breeze helping to offset the temperatures in the 90s. Strolling about the exterior premises with its trees, flowers, bridges and water falls was delightful.
Impressive! Encouraging! Expertly designed and executed! There were no flaws apparent, and this is an extensive exhibit that every Bible believer and especially every member of the Lord’s church would do well to visit. Visiting the Creation Museum is a good investment in undergirding one’s faith, and it would be a tremendously useful tool in Christian parenting. I have a tendency to be a little skeptical or to critically assess things like this, particularly if not associated with members of the church, but this certainly awed me. In addition, the resources to take home from the bookstore are plentiful. This destination needs to be on your radar for a visit – the sooner the better! You can begin planning by visiting the website for the Creation Museum (www.creationmuseum.org). Amazingly, prices for souvenirs, resources and food are reasonably priced – unlike other destinations awash in tourist trap prices. The pot roast sandwich was maybe the tastiest roast beef I have ever eaten, moderately priced and enough nearly for two people. There was not anything about this excursion that I did not fully appreciate (that is, in which I participated; we did not take time for some of the video presentations along the way, at least one of which may have included biblical misinformation about salvation – but I do not know since I missed that video presentation). In addition, there were some hints at premillennialism, which we certainly would not endorse. All in all, make your plans for touring the Creation Museum. (Coming Soon: a full scale construction of Noah’s ark and other unnamed exhibits.)
Following are some of the numerous pictures I snapped Monday.
