A Startling Upgrade at the Creation Museum

by Ken Ham on May 10, 2010

Last week, the Creation Museum’s Planetarium was shut down for four days as AiG staff and other technicians worked on what really is a STARtling upgrade!  (Excuse the pun.) Here is the sign people see when they enter the museum:

After 3 years of thousands of showings of AiG’s Planetarium programs, the projectors finally reached the end of their life.  There was no option—we needed new projectors.  We praise the Lord, we were able to use a new technology that makes the Planetarium programs much brighter (quite startling in fact).  I was amazed as I watched our programs on the new technology—almost like comparing the old technology to black and white television, and the new technology to HD color TV!

Keep in mind that the entrance fees people pay to get into the Creation Museum cover running costs—for upgrades, new exhibits, etc., we have to raise the funds.

To install the new projectors required a completely new set up in the Planetarium, so our talented fabricators and others had to build special structures to house the new projectors—complete with special air filters and added air conditioning!  All in all this was very expensive (but necessary upgrade).

When you come to the Creation Museum, make sure you don’t miss out on a Planetarium program—even if you’ve seen one of them before!  The new technology really is STARtling!

Here are some more photographs taken when I spoke at the “Home School Book Fair” in Arlington (Dallas/Fort Worth area) this past Friday and Saturday.  It was thrilling to have so many young children tell me how much they wanted to study to be creation scientists!


Regard not your stuff

(Genesis 45:20) Also regard not your stuff; for the good of all the land of Egypt is yours.

At death we will say, “From Mount Pisgah’s lofty height, I view my home and take my flight: This robe of flesh I’ll drop and rise to seize the everlasting prize”

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
