Our first stop was the Planetarium for a show. It was exciting just standing in line (though we did let the kids out of line to go see the turtles swimming in the aquarium).
There were plenty of live animals in aquariums and terrariums. Because we had been studying not only creation and the flood, but also what to expect at the museum the kids knew they had poison dart frogs there. They were quite excited to spot them (in all of their bright colors) right away.
As you enter the walk through portion of the museum (the bulk of it) you get some lessons on fossils, sin, the Bible and creation.
