Name another country on the planet that has a Creation Museum. It's almost a contradiction in terms. But there it is in Petersburg, Ky., a sparkling new 70,000-sq.-ft. temple to a particularly narrow interpretation of the Bible: namely, that the world is just 6,000 years old and all creatures have shared the planet with mankind — hence the bizarre display of a triceratops wearing a saddle. The museum is controversial, for obvious reasons, and plenty of people dismiss its contents as bunk. But plenty of others believe every word and diorama. You'll just have to judge for yourself. Admission: $21.95
