I had to read a couple of times this article to believe that is not an internet hoax but unfortunately it is not. It would just give me a good laugh but there are some very sad facts involved in this.

1. The Donate button on the menu on top- I would like to contribute to this world that some children in Africa would live to their first birthday, that the rain forest wouldn’t disappear or the ice caps wouldn’t melt. (If it is even possible). I should give my hard earned money to this facility ? That brings us to the second sad point closely related to the first one.

2. The Creation Museum is a $27 million facility. I’m sure most unfortunate people would be happy with $27.

3. The Unicorn Museum is created by a noted fantasy author. I would like to know who ? Who is so fed up with our beautiful planet that only feel comfortable living on it if he stays in the realm of his fantasy? I enjoy reading fantasy and science-fiction but I’m not delusional about it. I can proudly say I can walk thru a dark forest without being scared of dark elves.

4. KidzCrafts: DIY Chimera Workshop- Oh no poisoning the next generation !!!

5. User Submitted Billboards- There is more people believe in this besides the Brotherhood Of Fantasy Creatures. All hope is lost !

Any comments?

P.S: I just hope some real horses didn’t get injured…

Is it a joke? At the bottom it says “powered by this week in science”.

when i was younger i took some acid and rode a unicorn to the store to pick up some OJ.

maybe they can make an exhibit about that!

A fully ... for intellectually undiscerning guests.

I think we can say with the first two paragraphs that they are having a laugh at our less evolved southern US cousins.

I think that you’ll find Peter S. Beagle to be the fantasy writer who is the founder of this museum (it’s his animated movie, produced by RankinBass that is featured in the video-clip—sad!  Tolkein, among other things seemed to respect reason, despite his sense of fantasy).

Oh geez… it’s a joke in the tradition of Landover Baptist.  They want to erect a billboard to make fun of the creationist museum. The Creationists seemed to have left the Unicorns out of their revision of history.  They’re just trying to help them get their own facts straight!

And Peter S. Beagle is a saint!!

I LOVE LANDOVER BAPTIST.

It’s a joke, indeed… A good one.
