AiG Museum Visit

One might wonder if it is worth it to spend over 8 hours on the road to visit a not-yet-completed museum for an afternoon. Well, it is, if that museum is the new Answers in Genesis Creation Museum.

After joining Josiah D, director of the Akron Fossils & Science Center, and his caravan last Friday for the behind-the-scenes event at the museum--we were able to walk through the museum and grounds, hear Ken Ham speak, and get a group photo with him--I can hardly wait for the official opening next spring.

While I had expected more of a focus on archaeological exhibits and displays (i.e. a bunch of bones), I'm impressed by the approach that they are taking. I could try to describe the Seven C's of History here. But, better yet, why not let you read Ken Ham's own explanation?

Good to see a post about Answers in Genesis' (AiG) Creation Museum. What a phenomenal museum, very well done and beautiful! I think the Creation Museum measures up to and exceeds the standards of quality exhibited at the Smithsonian (though I've never been their apart from picture books). None of these praises, however, would be worth it if it were not for the clarity of the Gospel message that the museum so clearly presents. The millions of dollars spent to build the museum would all be meaningless in light of eternity if it were not for the un-blinching declaration of the truth and relevance of Scripture that the museum so intensely defends. To God be the glory.

(at the risk of sounding like an ape...) OOH! OOH! Can I come? PLEASE! I volunteered at an AiG conference weekend in my hometown, and loved every minute of it. There is so much incredibe knowledge inside that organization. I'd been looking forward to visiting the museum, but I didn't know it was this spring!
