How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
It's hard to write a review for this place because I have to admit that I am not a fan of this sort of religious evangelism and the place is really a black eye for Kentucky. That being said, the displays are well done, especially the dioramas. You can tell that a lot of planning and design have gone into this place. Unfortunately the place seems to be a money pit for unsuspecting families. The normal admission is exorbitant and that doesn't even include the planetarium which adds an additional cost to the ticket. Also, I am always wary of any place that tries to herd me into getting my picture taken. In this day of ubiquitous digital cameras, does this ploy even make money anymore? The science here is shaky at best. If you are expecting an in depth exploration of the arguments for creation, you will need to buy one of the books in the gift shop. This place is just a pop up Sunday school book. One of the things that puzzled me was the area devoted to a compatriot of Billy Graham who rejected god and turned to atheism later in life. A hidden message of truth?

Help others enjoy a great night out

Bring a camera. There are lots of great scenes to photograph.
