PETERSBURG -- The Creation Museum remains under construction but officials are planning to open the center next spring. The facility will likely attract visitors from across the nation and the world.
The $25 million facility is already a working office for Answers in Genesis, the nonprofit Christian organization that is building the museum on its estimated 50 acres in rural northwestern Boone County.
"We're very evangelistic. We're not going to hide that fact," said Mark Looy, Answers in Genesis' vice president of outreach.
"This museum here is going to be, yes, a history museum showing that the Bible is true from the Book of Genesis to the Book of Revelation...but we're also going to be showing the Gospel, the message of Christ along the way."
