Vacation 2011

The Creation Museum

On Monday, May 23, we were able to stop by the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky. It was a wonderful experience. It thrilled us to be in a place that was devoted to proving our faith, and believe me, the proof is all around us. I have 47 photos to share today, so I hope you have a few minutes to hit the high points of the museum with me. I could have shared 347, but I won’t. ๐Ÿ™‚ If you ever get the chance, you must stop by this exciting place!
A chance for kids to search for hidden fossils on this wall.
An original Greek manuscript.
A copy of the Torah on sheepskin, confiscated from the Iraqi palace when Saddam Hussein was captured. It is dated at 300 years old!
A copy of the Torah found in Germany, hidden by Jews during the time of Hitler.
Adam and Eve.ย 
Adam in the Garden.
The serpent – I loved that I got Mitchell’s expression here. He wasn’t posing!
Eve, giving Adam the forbidden fruit. They think it was a type of berry or grape! The hand holding the fruit was shaking!
Eve, sorrowing over the sacrifice of an innocent lamb so she could have clothing.
The lamb, a picture of Jesus! There is no more need of a lamb, because of the Lamb – the Son of God!
Adam, working.
An angry T-Rex after the fall of man.
Do you see the bird in the upper left hand corner of this photo?
I zoomed waaay in and got this photo!ย 
Expectant Eve. I never think of her this way, so I thought this was neat.
Cain & Abel.

An idea of how thick the walls of the Ark could have been! Incredible!
They theorize that because of Noah’s faithfulness to the Lord, he was probably wealthy enough to hire laborers to help build the Ark. Here, these men on break are talking about how Noah is a religious fanatic!
My favorite part of the exhibit were these dioramas of the Ark!

A model of what the inside of the Ark might have looked like.
Cages for animals.
Cows eating. ๐Ÿ™‚
The FLOOD!

I thought the detail on this diorama was so neat. See the algae, barnacles and slime on the bottom of the Ark?
I just thought this photo was cute! ๐Ÿ™‚
We enjoyed hearing Ken Ham’s son-in-law, Bodie Hodge, speak about Dinosaurs, Dragons and the Bible. He autographed a book for the kids and posed for a photo. He and Terry got to chat for a while.
See this!! It’s Home School Enrichment magazine for sale in the Creation Museum Bookstore! My article is in it! I posed for a photo beside it and I know the cashier, who was watching, thought I was nuts. And, yep, she’s right! ๐Ÿ˜‰
A real Raptor egg.
Lauren looking scared next to the T-Rex.
Lauren and Mitchell pretend to be running from the T-Rex! ๐Ÿ™‚
A T-Rex egg, about the size of a football!
A T-Rex tooth. It was HUGE.
Me when I got up that morning.
They not only have an extraordinary museum, but a beautiful garden and petting zoo!

The Lord gave us beautiful weather for our day at the Creation Museum. We had a wonderful time with each other, learning more about God’s amazing world. By the end of the day, we were tired. But it was a good tired.
