A group of children from a local Hodgenville church took a trip to the Creation Museum over the weekend, a state-of-the-art 70,000 square foot facility which "brings the pages of the Bible to life," according to the museum website. The museum is located in Petersburg, Kentucky.

Here's how the website of the Museum describes itself:

The state-of-the-art 70,000 square foot museum brings the pages of the Bible to life, casting its characters and animals in dynamic form and placing them in familiar settings. Adam and Eve live in the Garden of Eden. Children play and dinosaurs roam near Eden’s Rivers. The serpent coils cunningly in the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Majestic murals, great masterpieces brimming with pulsating colors and details, provide a backdrop for many of the settings.

Included in the 160 exhibits at the Museum are the Garden of Eden, which visitors can walk through. Below is a photo Adam and Eve as they're portrayed in the exhibit. You also get a glimpse and feel of Noah's ark as you traverse the learning center.

Also scattered throughout the tour is some awesome dinosaurs, including T. Rex, and Triceratops, which two of the visitors are having fun sitting on.

For those who enjoy a visual theater experience, there is a terrific Special Effects Theater, which includes mists appearing to rise from the ground and fun, rumbling seats. You can see stories of the six days of creation and The Last Adam, among others. 

Visitors can also participate in the Stargazers Planetarium, where they can view an amazing visual of an extraordinary spaceflight.

Other attractions include a rain forest garden, bog garden, over 6,000 plants in a lake, representing 500 varieties. There is also a petting zoo, among numerous other exhibits and activities to partake in.

With the way the media attempts to manipulate and smother Christianity and the bible, places like the creation museum are terrific learning centers and tools for anyone to visit and learn from, while being entertained.
