  • So much biblical information, in a very long exhibit posted on the walls for you to read. We found the arc information fascinating. The evolution portion was boring in its content. We grew fatigued...

  • Very informative and amazing place to visit. I love the Dinosaur Exhibit, the history on Dragons “Dinosaurs”. The 4D Theater was enjoyable especially the story on creation. The Stargazer Planetarium was awesome especially the show on Created Cosmos, I loved it. The exhibit on Adam and Eve and the fall of man was very cool. The explanation on how things were before and after sin and how it affected man, animal and plants was wonderfully explained. Highly recommend this experience.
  • The creation museum is an absolute must see especially if you are visiting the Ark encounter as well. There is so much to do inside and outside it kept everyone in our family entertained! We were also able to feed our family of five for $28 at the Noah Cafe. I was shocked because where can you feed your family of five for $28, especially being out? Wow. They also have souvenir cups for $19.99 each that have unlimited refills that you can use at the creech museum as well as the Ark encounter. My personal highlight was seeing the dinosaur that had original bones in its skeleton as well as the original skull still intact! Just cool to see something like that. Another highlight for us was the different speakers and activities that they have scheduled throughout the day. We bought the 3-day pass that went between the Ark encounter and the creation museum and every day you come they hand you a schedule of the events of the day which was nice! There's a beautiful botanical garden and lots of areas to walk as well as a small zoo and fun animals to see. We sat outside for awhile and watched people zip line across the property, also a fun thing to see! We bought the 3-day pass for the Ark encounter and Creation museum and ended up going to the creation museum one day and the Ark 2 days. Our kids are 8,6, and 3.5 and this is what they preferred and we were wanting to do that too. So much to see and do, you can easily plan to stay a whole day here.
  • Had a wonderful time here. Just happened to visit on Fathers day and their special allowed free entry for Dad's plus kids 10 & under were free. There was so much interesting info to see and read about. Not so great w/an active 2yr old but we made due till the playground and animal expo. Easily spent about 5hrs (not including lunch) and had a great time.
  • Took our 9 year old grandson. Wasn't sure how he would like it but was pleasantly surprised. The 4D movie experiences were very good. The other movies were very well done also. The walk through the exhibits was a little more challenging to keep his attention but he learned a lot in the process. He liked the playground, the gem mining and the small zoo. Overall spent about 5 hours there including lunch and had a great day.
  • We enjoyed our visit to the Creation Museum. It is a very detailed museum with beautiful exhibits. However, I feel like this is just a one time visit attraction. I would not visit this museum multiple times. The animals were underwhelming, but that make have been due to cold, foggy weather on the day of our visit. The best part was the gardens and the Christmas lights. The lights are beautiful and so are the grounds, even in winter. I can’t imagine how beautiful the gardens must be in the spring and summer.
