With its third anniversary still over a month away, the world-renown Creation Museum anticipates welcoming its millionth visitor on Monday. Answers in Genesis, the ministry behind the museum, has planned a celebration and large gift package for the special guest, and has scheduled a photo-opp and meet-and-greet with Ken Ham, Answers in Genesis president and co-founder.

Opened to the public on May 28, 2007, attendance ran so strong the first summer that the Creation Museum saw 250,000 guests by October – a number it hadn’t expected to see until the end of the first year. Despite a struggling economy, museum attendance has remained above 300,000 visitors a year, reaching the one millionth visitor milestone in less than three years.
In addition to the high-tech Creation Museum, Answers in Genesis, a biblical apologetics ministry, includes among its outreaches more than 250 teaching meetings each year, an award-winning website, and the Answers with Ken Ham radio program heard on more than 800 stations throughout the United States.
