The Creation Museum recently added zip line courses to its property and an insect exhibit inside the building. Both of those things, on the surface, seem to have little to do with Creationism. So… what’s up with that?
The Associated Press’ Dylan Lovan writes about how it’s all about increasing attendance:
Museum co-founder Ken Ham said he knew when it opened to big crowds in 2007 that new features would need to be added from time to time. Total attendance since the opening is approaching 1.9 million, he said.
Ham said the museum is welcoming of people seeking fun without a creationism lesson.
“That’s what we wanted to see, because it will bring in a broader range of people in here and provide something for the community as well — they don’t have to go to the Creation Museum, they can just come for the zip lines,” Ham said.
I appreciate that Lovan added my own perspective to his piece:
