The Creation “Museum”

….This was not a museum: it is a haunted house. It is a carnival ride. It shows throughout in the layout – the rubes are supposed to be shuttled through efficiently, get their little thrills, and exit so the next group can make the trip. If they’d had a few million more, I imagine they would have invested in tracks and little cars and turned it into the Creation Ride. The creators of this place wouldn’t recognize a museum if they woke up in the middle of the Smithsonian on a bed of museum maps with a giant sign saying “MUSEUM” in front of their faces and an army of docents shouting directions at them. They seem to have gotten all their information about how a museum works by visiting Disneyland….

“Prepare to believe.”

Wasn’t that one of the punch lines for a paranoia drenched science fiction television show in the 90s? Just asking.
