A visit to the Creation Museum – self paced.   This 70,000-square foot “walk through history” museum is an alternative to the evolutionary natural history museums. See how its interpretation of the Bible -the “history book of the universe” – provides an account of the beginning of all things. Prepare to take a journey through a visual presentation of the history of the world, based on its 7 C’s of History – Creation, Corruption, Catastrophe, Confusion, Christ, Cross and Consummation, where you’ll discover an interpretation of how science confirms biblical history.

Lunch will be on our own at Noah’s Café.

This evening, enjoy a Two-Hour, private dinner cruise with contemporary Gospel music.
