The popular, high-tech Creation Museum near Cincinnati is not only commemorating its 10-year anniversary this weekend, but is also witnessing record crowds. As a part of this weekend’s celebration of 10 years of excellent attendance and regional impact, the museum is opening two striking new exhibits.

Since May 28, 2007, the Creation Museum, located in Petersburg, Kentucky, has welcomed more than 3 million visitors. This year, with guests also visiting the museum’s sister attraction the Ark Encounter in Williamstown, Kentucky, the first-year museum attendance of 404,000 is being shattered. The number of visitors has necessitated the addition of a new parking lot to hold an additional 1,200 cars. Museum attendance over the past several months has more than doubled from the year before.

Attendance has also been excellent at the Ark Encounter, with crowds larger than expected. On some Saturdays this spring, 5,000 people have toured the 510-foot-long ship. The renowned America’s Research Group estimated that a minimum of 1.4 million guests would visit during the first full year of operation. Although many vacation weeks (Memorial Day through July 6) were missed in 2016 because of the July 7 opening and thus a full year of operation with a complete summer was missed, it is quite possible that, with the explosion of motor coach tours and the creation of so many raving fans of the Ark, around two million guests will probably tour the Ark in a full year of operation.
