  • museumTourism here in the Cincinnati/Tri-State area is on the rise, according to a study just reported in news.cincinnati.com. Area attractions last year drew 22 million visitors, and that is good news for the local economy. The photo series included with the announcement is this snapshot (image credit: news.cincinnati.com) of a familiar site for the 1.7 million who have already visited the Answers in Genesis Creation Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky, since it opened in 2007. Located just off Interstate 275 at exit 11, the state-of-the-art 70,000 square foot Creation Museum features this meeting with an animatronic Utahraptor in Corruption Valley, a part of the museum illustrating the effects of sin on the world. The early history of the earth comes to life as visitors of all ages Walk Through History. Stargazers Planetarium and Snakes Alive! videos and dioramas, animatronics and fossils, dinosaurs and dragons throughout the museum not only bring biblical history to life but also showcase many scientific models that help us to understand how the events described in the Bible explain what we see in today’s world. The Creation Museum is a great place for the believer and the skeptic, for the young and the old. It is a place to find out the biblical and scientific basis for young-earth creation. It is a place to see how you can trust what the Bible says from Creation to Christ and beyond. Make plans now to be part of the next 22 million visitors to the area, and don’t miss the special activities planned for this year’s Christmas Town. See CreationMuseum.org for more information.
