Historic day for AiG–Groundbreaking for Creation Museum!

March 16, 2001

Supporters of the Bible-upholding ministry of Answers in Genesis-US gathered on March 17 at 11:30 a.m. for a groundbreaking ceremony at the site of the future Creation Museum and Family Discovery Center in Northern Kentucky. This historic event in the long battle over Biblical authority is open to everyone. The event will also be taped and available to view on this Web site at a later date.

The future 95,000-square-foot facility, which will also contain AiG's headquarters, will be built on a scenic 47-acre property facing I-275 in western Boone County, Kentucky (and west of the Cincinnati Airport - directions below).* When open, museum visitors will take a 'walk-through' history of the world starting from the Bible's very first verse.

Dinosaur models, colorful dioramas, eye-opening videos, excellent fossil and mineral collections, and other first-class exhibits will eventually be displayed in a center that will rival many of the natural history museums in America's Midwest. About $7 million in museum materials have already been collected to be a part of the future displays.

Joining AiG Executive Director Ken Ham for the groundbreaking ceremony was recording artist Buddy Davis (who played some of his music), Pastor Charles Wagner (who leads the 1700-member Calvary Baptist Church in N. Kentucky), Jim Sales (president of the architectural firm A.M. Kinney Associates that designed the building), and county officials.

"This is a major event in the history of the AiG ministry," declared Ken Ham. "We invite everyone in the region–and beyond-- to join us for this special occasion and discover what we plan to do on this beautiful property. We want this Bible-proclaiming center to attract visitors from all over the world, including by taking a 'virtual tour' on our popular Web site." About 170 million Americans live within a one-day drive or one-hour flight from the museum site, and AiG receives about 11,000 worldwide visitors a day on its Web site.

Refreshments were served and a variety of complimentary materials (including Ken Ham's booklet "Where did the 'races' come from?"–a question to be answered in the museum; a commemorative museum magnet, buttons, etc.) were given away. Guests also had the opportunity to view artist renderings of the complex, walk the property, and fellowship with AiG staff.
