We spent day #3 of our spring break adventures at the Creation Museum. We arrived around 10:30 and easily spent the day there until close to 4:00. Several friends have asked if one day was enough. My response: if our kids were a tad older it would have made sense to spend a portion of a second day there - listening to guest speakers and taking time to read everything. That being said, Grady and I were happy with the amount of time we did spend there and didn't feel like we had to skip past too many things.
We enjoyed a few different theater productions - all which were very well done. Our family favorite was a special effects show that included "wind" blowing your hair and "rain drops" on your face and arms. Annalyse and Micah sat intently and took it all in; meanwhile Grady Lee was doubled over his chair trying desperately to figure out where the wind and rain were coming from. Just as the credits began to roll at the end, he was ecstatic to discover the rain source: a small hole in the armrest of his chair!
It goes without saying that the dinosaur display was a favorite as well. Boys + Dinosaurs = Excitement and Fun!
The temperature was unusually warm the day we visited so we enjoyed an hour outside exploring the petting zoo and walking around the gardens. Ask as they may, we said no to the kids' request for camel rides. And to the zip line. We're such un-fun parents.
