What I did
As you enter the museum, they had a sale table selling all kinds of things from books to T-shirts...well it took at least 15 minutes to get the family past this table and actually enter the museum. The main foyer has an animated dinosaur display, and you enter the main exhibit by walking through a darkened river canyon with fossils and scorpions on the walls....
The museum presents pretty much the same evidence/archaeological facts as the Smithsonian and other museums, but bases its assumptions and interpretations of those facts biblically. It is not a theological or technical museum - a couple of scientists (also Missionary kids) we spoke to were very disappointed with the lack of technical content on the case for creation. As a non technical person, I thought it was great - it also had the kids captivated for two full days - something no other museum has done!! It is much easier to image a dinosaur when you see what it probably looked like, rather than the skeleton of one....
We took a lot of video of the museum, we will put this together as we travel....what this spot....
We took our pre-made peanut butter sandwiches out into the museum's extensive gardens (8 different bridges - floating, suspension, arch....) The season was wrong to fully enjoy these gardens though. The first day the sitting in the sun was beautiful....until the icy wind blew - the outside temp was about 8-9 degrees C but the wind was definitely out the freezer!!! This necessitated a hasty retreat to the museum for warmth and hot chocolate and chai tea.
When the show started, I was impressed. They use multiple high resolution data projectors to create 3D images which transport you into deep space - no glasses and you can almost reach up and touch the stars wow.
The content of the shows was good but not in the league of Louis Giglio's indescribable DVD. I can just imagine what seeing it using this technology would be like.....
