Kentucky ark attraction adding biblical truth exhibit

Posted: Updated:

WILLIAMSTOWN, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky's massive biblical attraction the Ark Encounter is opening a new exhibit that promotes the message of the Bible.

The 510-foot wooden ark modeled after the biblical story of Noah opened in July. Since then, it has drawn large crowds to Grant County in northern Kentucky.

The new exhibit is called "Why The Bible Is True." The new exhibit is composed of 11 scenes on the bow end of the ark.

The group that built the ark, Answers in Genesis, promotes a literal interpretation of the Bible's Old Testament and has attracted controversy with an assertion that the earth is about 6,000 years old.

Leaders say this will be one of the largest exhibits at the Ark Encounter, with 2,500 square feet of displays which take visitors into the pages of a novel to explore questions about the truth of the Bible.

A ribbon cutting ceremony is planned for 1 p.m. on Feb. 24.
