  • We visited the museum on a Tuesday morning and what we experienced was long, slow moving lines for exhibits, restrooms, and food. I'm not sure if we just came at a bad time, but the staff and faciliti...  more »
  • The museum has a lot of the same information as the Ark regarding the flood of Noah's time but more info on creation. Very slow moving through the exhibits. Some extras must be purchased. Gardens are ...  more »

  • A fantastic family friendly museum! Great food and good information. It points out that there's more than point of view when it comes to the past and what really happened. They make a specific point of counteracting what is taught by the public school system and by the science community. It was a bit crowded however. They could work on crowd control a bit more. Had a great show about space though. And I went to the petting zoo they have. It's great. Pay five bucks to ride a camel. At 2:30 they had all the baby animals out for guests to pet. Absolutely loved it. Great family experience.
  • Amazing truth being taught here. I liked that it explained world view and biblical view. Visited from Canada, well worth the trip. The grounds outside are also great for pictures. Great staff, had a wonderful time with our kids. Due come prepared to spend 3-5 hours as there is a lot to see and do. Many teaching moments experienced because of the great exhibits. Thank you.
  • It was awesome. We all had a great time and learned a lot. I love that we were able to take our time and didn't feel rushed to see everything because they have it set up in a way that flows nicely. The food is reasonably priced and good quality. The small extra activities are reasonably priced as well. We were blessed to watch the reptile workshop. The speaker was funny and kept everyone engaged as well as very great at bringing the gospel into the presentation. We loved the whole experience.
  • NOTE: I recommend arriving after lunchtime to avoid thick crowds! I am from Florida and the Creation Museum is worth the drive! The Biblical material is easily digested by children and adults, revealing profound truths about God's word and how Earth came to be! Fundamental and reformed Christians will enjoy the museum and those seeking more knowledge about the Biblical worldview will not be disappointed! Thank you for providing an incredible witness to Jesus' power for anyone who wishes to come, Answers in Genesis.
  • This place is amazing!! Very Very informative and a good place to take your kids and fun for adults too. They have a planetarium, and at the time I was there, there were hands-on interaction with snakes and other reptiles. There us a lot of walking but plenty of spots to sit and take a break. They also offer wheelchair and scooter for rental. They have a zip line course that gives you one on one guides that help you learn the basics of zip lining. Overall I had an amazing time and would encourage everyone to go visit!
