I consider myself to be an open minded person. I love to learn new things and to discover different points of view. I walked in there, hoping to learn something and maybe even be surprised but instead, it turned out to be a lecture for 2 hours where the man was "debunking" the science behind biology and evolution and never let me ask a question. He would constantly cut me off if I tried to talk. He is great at making people feel stupid, but not much else.
We went here after visiting the Royal Tyrrell Museum, and it was incredible to see the difference in both interpretations of existence. I'd highly recommend visiting the creation museum, so you can make an informed decision, instead of getting one side of the story force fed to you. Harry was also really funny - my son loved the antics, but truly, this man knows his history and science. We had a great in-depth chat about every aspect of life, which was honestly, quite fascinating.
