Vacation Suggestion -- AIG Creation Museum

Well, it is that time of the year again. Schools are graduating their seniors and the rest of the students are out (or soon will be) for summer vacations. This means, of course, that it is time to contemplate( ta dah ) summer vacations !

So, off and on during the next few weeks, I will suggest a few places to go for the family vacation.

Knowing that finances are tight for most folks, I will NOT be suggesting a trip to Katmandu, Antarctica, a cruise around the world, or other expensive or exotic places. But, I do have a few affordable places in mind that you and your family or friends will love.

Today’s suggestion for a great travel vacation adventure is a visit to the Answers In Genesis Creation Museum !

As stated on the AIG website: “The Creation Museum, located seven miles west of the Cincinnati Airport, presents a “walk through history.” Designed by a former Universal Studios exhibit director, this state-of-the-art 70,000 square foot museum brings the pages of the Bible to life. A fully engaging, sensory experience for guests. Murals and realistic scenery, computer-generated visual effects, over fifty exotic animals, life-sized people and dinosaur animatronics, and a special-effects theater complete with misty sea breezes and rumbling seats. These are just some of the impressive exhibits that everyone in your family will enjoy.”

But, ‘nuff of that quoting from the site. I will soon give you the link so you can read all about it for yourself.

You need to allow a FULL day (preferably 2 days) to really do it justice. There is just so much to see and do that you don’t want to be rushed. It is fun, educational, and amazing! They have a state of the art Planetarium, life size Dinosaurs, several Theaters (Special Effects, Dragon, Last Adam, etc), a Petting zoo, Botanical Gardens, and more.

This is definitely a MUST SEE -- MUST DO Vacation Destination. And, It is not ‘just for kids’. It is for all ages. So, whether you are a ‘kid in a stroller’ or a ‘kid at heart with grey hair and a wheel chair’ or anything in between, you will LOVE this vacation destination!

Info re the hours, admission fees, etc. is on the website. So, without further ado, HERE’S THE LINK
