Guests walking on the garden trail at the Creation Museum in Northern Kentucky can now use their cell phones to learn many exciting lessons about the plants and animals living there—and what they teach us about the Creator. Signs posted along the path and at the petting zoo display a “stop” number, which guests can dial to enjoy the audio tour.
More than three hundred types of beautiful flowers, trees, and shrubs line the walk. The tour is updated frequently to keep up with the seasons and the ever-changing blooms.
At the petting zoo, the audio tour describes some of the ingenious designs God gave to each animal. More than thirty different animals call the zoo their home, not counting the ducks, peafowl, and guinea fowl that roam the gardens.
The petting zoo also provides a perfect opportunity to teach important lessons about the created “kinds” listed in Genesis 1. For example, Zoe is a zorse (a zebra/horse mix), and Cletus is a zonkey (a zebra/donkey mix). Because these variants can breed together, we believe that zebras, horses, and donkeys belong to the same created kind, descended from one set of parents that God saved on the Ark.
Many Creation Museum guests say that strolling through the gardens is the highlight of their visit. Now while they enjoy the roses, tulips, butterflies, bridges, and waterfalls—or feed their new-found furry friends at the petting zoo—they can learn much more about what they see. The cell phone tour is free, except for any phone charges for minutes, and most of the stops are less than 90 seconds long.
