From the news today --

Two years after its controversial opening, the Creation Museum in
Kentucky has drawn 720,000 visitors, far more than the 250,000
annually organizers predicted. It brought in $7 million in receipts
last fiscal year, with organizers saying it has had an economic impact
of more than $20 million. Along the way, it has become a popular
science field trip destination for Christian schools, religious
groups, home-schoolers and public school clubs. Students represent
many of the museum's group visitors, which make up roughly 20 percent
to 30 percent of overall attendance, officials said.
