"The Creation Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky, offers a “spatial sermon” to convince visitors to reject the theory of evolution in favor of Young Earth Creationism, a literal reading of the biblical creation story. The museum combines strategies from the journalistic discussion of the debate with the form of a conversion narrative. The goal of this embodied conversion narrative is to convince visitors that the evidence for creationism and evolution is equivalent and insuffıcient for deciding the issue, and the only way to adjudicate the issue is to accept what the museum’s creators believe to be the transparent wisdom of the Bible."

"Lynch says museums – especially history museums – are meant to give audiences a point of view on the past and on why we need to care about that particular part of our past. “The environment is constructed by how you get from point-A to point-B. I think the Creation Museum is very much like that as well. Visitors are grounded by the story of the Bible from the moment they get in line and start moving through.”"

" "Again, there’s a sense of creating a counterculture, the attempt to create a counter-intellectual world," Mr. Rosenthal said. “Especially in their plans to be visited like Colonial Williamsburg, these communities seem like a cross between the Henry Ford Museum village and the Creation Museum in Kentucky."
