Visiting the Creation Museum? Try These 7 Historical Sites Nearby, Too

Though the Creation Museum claims history goes back only 6,000 years or so, there are a couple places nearby that encompass a longer span — and quite a few sites that look closely at local history. Here are seven historical sites within a short drive of the museum:

SPECIAL: Prayer Changes Your Brain in 4 Amazing Ways

1. Behringer-Crawford Museum: “History in Motion” is the motto for the Behringer-Crawford Museum, located in a former private house in nearby Covington, Kentucky -- a short walk across the Ohio River from downtown Cincinnati. The museum showcases Northern Kentucky’s history -- “roads, railways and rivers” -- and maintains Civil War sites in nearby Devou Park. There’s a discount for Creation Museum visitors.

2. Harriet Beecher Stowe’s House: The house is open to visitors in Cincinnati. In addition to the life of the author of “Uncle Tom’s Cabin,” the house showcases the abolitionists, the civil rights campaign and the Underground Railroad among other milestones in the campaign for human rights in the U.S.

3. Freedom Center: Featuring the Underground Railroad and Cincinnati’s role in guiding escaped slaves north to Lake Erie and eventual freedom -- but encompassing the fight for freedom even today -- the Freedom Center in downtown Cincinnati “celebrates freedom’s heroes.”

4. Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal:
The Museum Center turned a former passenger train hub into an exhibit center for almost anything. History buffs will want to see the Cincinnati History Museum and the Cincinnati Historical Society Library -- and the Museum of Natural History and Science.

5. The Abbey of Gethsemani: Located in New Haven, Kentucky, the Abbey of Gethsemani offers a historical look at the Trappist monastery as well as a Retreat House for spiritual seekers “from around the world.” All visitors are welcome to join the monks in prayer -- and shop at the gift shop featuring the monastery’s own cheese and the products of other Trappist monasteries around the world.

6. The Basilica of St. Joseph Proto-Cathedral: Located in Bardstown, the Basilica is just south of the Northern Kentucky region. Bardstown was the site of the first Catholic diocese west of the Allegheny Mountains, and of the diocese’s first cathedral. It’s still a working cathedral, but historical tours are offered.

7. National Museum of the United States Air Force:
An hour north of Cincinnati, the National Museum of the United States Air Force at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base houses under multiple roofs everything from the fragile craft the preceded the Wright Brothers to the speed-record-busting SR-71 spy plane, with exhibits that showcase not only history-making planes, but the lives of those who used them.

Between the planes you’ll find exhibits on the Holocaust, prisoners of war, the men who pushed the Berlin Airlift through to success, and the fall of the Berlin Wall. A fourth building under construction will house the museum’s presidential aircraft, including the plane -- with a dent from the coffin still in the door -- that took President John F. Kennedy to Dallas and brought his body home.
