    I was there once probably 12 or more yrs ago. It was interesting. I remember the IMAx movie we watched was a crew climbing Mt Everest. I literally got butterflies in my stomach (and a couple lurches) from the heights, it was so real. Someday I would love to go to the Creation Museum in Cinncinati… someday.
