Creation Museum Also Has Observatory

We noticed that Cincy Magazine featured an interesting article on astronomy-related attractions in our metro area ("Eyes on the Skies," February).

In reading about these "four wonderfully different" facilities for people of Greater Cincinnati to enjoy, the most popular astronomy programs in the area "” and unique among them all "” was not mentioned. These are held at the planetarium and observatory of the Creation Museum, located near the Cincinnati Airport.

In five years, over 1 million people have taken a tour of the universe in one of three programs held inside our high-tech planetarium. In addition, the Creation Museum conducts evening "Stargazer" programs in our well-equipped observatory. This observatory features the historic and original Johnsonian Telescope (used by NASA during the Apollo lunar program in the 1960s) and it houses other high-power telescopes. 

Our two facilities are overseen by a full-time PhD astronomer. What makes the observatory and planetarium unique is that their programs declare the handiwork of the Master Designer of the universe and the reliability of the Bible.
