The Creation Museum was the last stop on our spring break trip. Thank you to the Creation Museum for providing our family with tickets to facilitate our visit.
After the awesomeness of the Ark Encounter, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect with the Creation Museum. We decided to visit because it is considered the “sister attraction” to the Ark Encounter. However, after growing up in church and learning about the creation, we were wondering exactly how could the Creation Museum have enough to fill up an entire museum.
Boy, was I wrong! The Creation Museum was an awesome experience. With a nature walk, a petting zoo, and a special exhibit on dinosaurs, the Creation Museum was much more than any of our family expected. It was right up there with the Ark Encounter.
The Creation Museum had many of the elements that you would image- a detailed description of the creation and a discussion of dinosaurs- but there were other surprising exhibits there, too.
My kids loved Dr. Crawley’s Insectorium. There were numerous insects in the exhibit, and the triplets enjoyed seeing who could locate the largest insect.
I have one little boy who is a dinosaur lover. He enjoyed the dinosaur exhibit the most.
While there were several “no-touch” exhibits, there were also interactive exhibits that the kids could touch. We all know that kids love to touch everything, making this a big deal.
The different creation exhibits were more thorough than I had imagined that they would be. My own personal favorite was the elaborate re-creation of the Garden of Eden. This was just one of many of the gorgeous exhibits.
Each section had explanations to debunk many common misconceptions that are not Biblically based.
After going through the interior exhibits, we enjoyed a walk through the nature trail. My boys LOVE bridges, and the nature trail has a few different bridges that we could cross.
The Creation Museum also offers zip lines and a petting zoo. The zip lines are an additional cost, but the petting zoo is included with the ticket price.
If you are headed to the Ark Encounter, I definitely recommend purchasing the joint ticket option for the Ark Encounter and the Creation Museum. The kids will find it just as fascinating as the adults!
