We recently visited the Ark Encounter and the Creation Museum. While there, we had this cute little dinosaur with us who visited different exhibits at the Ark. You can see from the pictures some of the sights we saw. We met some friends from Florida, and stayed in a local hotel, so that we had time to visit both places.
We are going to have a gift box giveaway, that will include this little guy, as well as a couple other gifts.
The Ark is a full size replica of what Noah's Ark might have looked like. If you have never been there, you need to add it to your sights to see list. It is one of those things, that you understand must be big, but the reality of seeing it and walking inside is just amazing!! Inside the Ark, you will see huge cages to contain the animals, pots and other tools used to feed, prepare meals, and contain smaller animals. There are life size figures of Noah, his wife, his sons and their wives. The Ark has three levels. It is immense!!
You can view presentations at different spots in the Ark. There are places to eat, as well as a gift and book store. Outside they have a petting zoo.
The Creation Museum is approx. 45 minutes from the Ark. The Creation Museum has a Walk Thru History, an Insectarium, a Bible Room, a Dinosaur Den, a Planetarium, and several programs throughout the day as well. Outside is a beautiful garden, a petting zoo, and zip lines. Often there are different creation speakers to listen to. We heard Tommy Mitchell while there. Super presentation!! Some of our friends rode the zip line.
You will find the Creation Museum in Petersburg, KY. The Ark is in Williamstown KY. There are several hotels nearby, so you can spend more than one day in the area. You really need at least two days, one for the museum and one for the Ark. To find out more information, be sure to visit the website for the Creation Museum and the Ark Encounter.
Now back to the giveaway. The winner will receive the dinosaur that traveled with us, as well as a penny that was run through the machine at the Ark, and a Creation Museum lanyard. Then we are going to throw in a few extra goodies just for fun. I will tell about some of the other goodies in the upcoming weeks on Twitter and Facebook, so make sure you are following us there.
So get ready to enter!
