Welcome to the Creation Museum

This facility has been designed to shows why God´s infallible Word, rather than man´s faulty assumptions, is the place to begin if we want to make sense of our world.

The 75,000 square foot state-of-art allows you to experience earth history as God revealed it in the Bible. On your venture through biblical history, you will see nearly 150 stunning exhibits - featuring fearsome animatronic dinosaurs, talking heroes of the Faith and professional displays that honors God's Word. The museum has a 200 seat special effects theater, a beautiful botanical garden, a state-of-the-art planetarium, a petting zoo, a zip line for the adventurous, nature trails and lots more.

At the heart of the Creation Museum, is a chronological retelling of biblical history in seven parts called the Seven C's. Guests step back in time, beginning with the Creation and fast forwarded to Christ's return. Along the way, they see how God's Word provides the big-picture answers for our most difficult questions, whether about Science, the Bible, or our personal relationship with God. 

The Ark Encounter

Experience Bible history at the life-size Noah's Ark. It is 510 feet (155 meters) long, 85 feet (26 meters) wide and 51 feet ( 16 meters) high. It is three decks high and contains 132 bays. The ark is held 15 feet ( 4.6 meters) off the ground by a series of concrete towers. The starboard side of the hull merges into three 80 feet (24 meters) masonry towers containing stairwells, elevators and restrooms. Bays on the first deck contain models of some "kinds" of animals that is believed to have been on the ark.

The second deck contains more animal models, along with dioramas of Noah's workshop and a blacksmith. Bays on the third deck contains displays presenting what is believed what might have happened inside and outside the ark during the flood.  Meet Noah, his family and the animals on the Ark. 

Both The Creation Museum and The Ark Encounter is self-paced for your enjoyment to look and read the exhibits.
