Visitors to the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Ky., have been treated to a playful seasonal display in the bookstore at the Answers in Genesis (AiG) attraction.

Staff at the 3,000-square foot Dragon Hall Bookstore created a giant "Christmas Wraptor" dinosaur, made of holiday packages, in one of the main display windows. The presentation is based loosely on the museum's popular Utahraptor sculpture.

"We were looking for something that would tie in with the museum experience," said bookstore manager John Bartlett. "The colors and the lighting are beautiful. We've had some great comments from people."

Opened in 2006, the Dragon Hall is the start and finish point for the tour of the museum, which annually draws around 300,000 visitors. In addition to AiG resources, the store carries materials from publishers including Master Books and New Leaf Press and gifts from suppliers including Dicksons.
