Creation Museum

PETERSBURG, Ky. (AP) – A Kentucky museum dedicated to a literal interpretation of the Bible is planning to nearly triple its size.

The Kentucky Enquirer reports ( ) that Creation Museum leaders say a proposed three-story, 210,000-square-foot building would be a large hall for traveling exhibits. It’s part of the museum’s three-year plan.

Mike Zovath, co-founder of Creation Museum parent company Answers in Genesis, says it would be built where the current guest parking lot sits.

However, the museum needs approval for a zoning change to build a new parking lot. The Boone County Planning & Zoning Commission will decide Wednesday whether to recommend the change.

The expansion will help prepare for hundreds of visitors the museum anticipates after Ark Encounter, a full-scale Grant County Noah’s Ark replica, opens in July.
