A replica of a raptor and early human greet Creation Museum guests in the building's lobby.
When visitors first enter the exhibit, the museum makes it clear that creationists and scientists look at the same fossils and data, and yet arrive at different conclusions.
Additional information is offered on the exhibits, presented in a way that makes it easier for children to digest.
This sign also stands in the entrance. "The Bible is authoritative, without error and inspired by God."
Here we see Adam engaging with wildlife.
Above are Adam and Eve, surrounded by lotus flowers in a moment of intimacy.
Museum visitors ponder an exhibit item which expresses doubt as to humankind's relationship with Lucy, a 3.2 million-year-old human ancestor whose bones were found in 1974.
The museum recently added a petting zoo, which houses animals that museum curators believe existed in the biblical era.
Children at the petting zoo feed goats, one of the several animal species living in the zoo.
A woman takes her granddaughter for a walk in the museum's botanical gardens. In addition to a three-acre lake, the complex features a hummingbird and butterfly garden, a rainforest and "carnivorous bog" garden, as well as a koi pond and swinging bridge.

As visitors inch deeper into the museum (the museum actually descends from the ground level entry), they approach the fearful world of a society that has abandoned scripture.
A sign reads, "Scripture abandoned in the culture leads to relative morality, hopelessness and meaninglessness." Next to it are newspaper and magazine covers featuring violent minorities. Urban blight and crime appear as the consequence of a world without God.
As visitors venture into a collapsing suburbia — wherein women disrespect their husbands — they are met with this sign, which reads "Only 1 in 3 teens will continue to participate in church life once they are living on their own."
As evidenced by this doorway, a world without God is a world unhinged.
And yet, as these mannequins suggest, there is a path to safety: it is by believing in the word of God. However, like the boy featured above says, this view is not one taught in school.
"Dangerous ideas threaten our families," which is why in the Creation Museum gift shop (known as the Dragon Hall Bookstore), dozens of books providing biblical answers on everything from abortion to climate change to assisted suicide are sold — and at a discount if bought in bulk.
When we visited the museum, we noticed it was largely populated by families who were taking advantage of their tickets' two-day use.
A mother and daughter examine animal species toys — some of which include dragons.
The "Seven C's" of God's eternal plan: creation, corruption, catastrophe, confusion, Christ, cross and consummation.
AiG president Ken Ham's Foundations series is a 360-minute look at the "alarming state of Christianity today," which uses modern events as the backdrop for the necessity of a literal interpretation of the Bible.
This is just one of the T-shirts available at the museum gift shop.
