We were there for perhaps three hours or more - saw everything that was to be seen - including the bookstore and a great 22 minute film entitled "Men In White". Film presented a good case for creation vs evolution. It was shown in a reality theater. Never having the pleasure of being in a reality theater before, I was quite startled when the seats moved when thunder on the screen rolled - and when it rained on screen, we were spritzed with water. Have to admit, that does wake up one a bit.
Bookstore prices - well, as with all museums - pricey. Very pricey. Sis bought 2 postcards....wise decision. I walked away with zero purchases.
I have more photos of the museum on my webshot page.....which were painstakingly put in chronological order .... until I uploaded them. Darn.
The drive home was challenging....winding our way back to Dayton through rush hour traffic and of course, the never ending road construction. Timing is everything.
Looking back, I enjoyed the museum. While there is no doubt in my mind that indeed God created this beautiful world, I wanted to see the efforts of this museum. I thought it to be a little overkill for believers ... but for those sitting on the fence, I couldn't imagine anyone walking away without falling a little to the believing side - if not all the way. Well done.
I haven't been sewing too much lately - so I need to get back to the sewing table and finish a lovely quilt I started about a month ago. A dear friend supplied the pattern and sent me a lovely quilt for Christmas last year from the same pattern.
