Wordless Wednesday: July 18, 2018 (w/linky) - Vacation Field Trip Day 1: The Creation Museum

Last week we went on our end of year field trip to the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter in Kentucky. I promised I would share pictures. So, today I am sharing from our first day when we went to the Creation Museum. Next week I will share pictures from when we were at the Ark Encounter. And the following week I will be sharing pictures of our second day at the Creation Museum, when we spent half our time walking through the gardens and going to the petting zoo, and the other half finishing up exhibits in the museum.

Of course, first we had to get to the hotel. Which we did around midnight thanks to a traffic jam four minutes away from our hotel.

Breakfast in the hotel

Arrival at the museum. We loved the waterfall and looking at the fish.

Entrance to the museum

He loves the fossil.

Harold loved the raptor. We told him he couldn't name it "Blue."

They chose their favorite pictures in the next exhibit, and I had them stand next to them.

Walking through Creation. First the dinosaurs were friendly and vegetarian.

But after sin entered the world, and the curse, the were not friendly anymore. There was death and disease.

Moved into the small replica of Noah's Ark (which was sort of impressive before they made the Ark Encounter.) Here they got to take turns on this quiz.

We were thrilled to find something else we learned about, cuneiform.

The animatronic people are really cool. Some are even programmed to answer the questions found on the computer screen.


The skull in the case on the right is the real fossil, while the big dinosaur has a cast of it, as the real one would have been too heavy for the supports.

We loved finding this display of the dispersion of Noah's descendants after the flood, as we learned about it, and the girls worked on a map of it, earlier in the year.

They've grown a bit since the last time we went to the Creation Museum (back in 2014).

Headed back to the van so we could go to our home-away-from-home.

If you would like to see more pictures from the Creation Museum, I invite you to check out my Wordless Wednesday post from May of 2014.

Looking forward to seeing your Wordless (or not so wordless) Wednesday posts this week.

No button currently, and there won't be one until I can figure it out seeing as Photobucket has changed things. Feel free to still share the picture in place of the button on your Wordless Wednesday post or in a list of Wordless Wednesday linkies. Just link it to my Wordless Wednesday permalink please.
