StrangeSights has been noticing a growing number of out-of-the-norm theme parks and museums. Here’s some you might want to add to your next travel itinerary:
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Creation Museum - this Kentucky-based museum, opened only recently by the group Answers in Genesis, has exhibits depicting the creation of the earth and early Bible history such as the story of Noah and the Ark.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Dickens World - reportedly costing $148 million, this recently opened theme park is recreation of Victorian London (as Charles Dickens would have known it) at Chatham in southeast England. And yes, it does include a gift shop appropriately named Ye Olde Curiosity Gift Shoppe.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Holy Land Experience - Based on Orlando, Florida, this theme park includes a reconstruction of Jerusalem and what it may have been like in the year 66 AD.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Diggerland - UK-based adventure parks where people can drive diggers and other construction machinery.
