My wife & I, retired teachers, are both very strong Christians. Traveling the U.S. we have visited over 50 Calvary Chapels. I think we are the better target audience for this museum. I cannot imagine an atheist going here unless it was to ridicule it. With an exception to be noted later, this is not a place where I see... More

Museums exhibits are well organized and informative with history, measurable science, and displays kids will enjoy as well as adults. A Christian worldview is evident but science based. There is so much material to read along with the visual displays that you need to allow plenty of time for this attraction.

The museum is very large. Bible verses are attached to many of the articles and exhibits. The displays are beautiful. There are so many signs that it takes a very long time to digest it all. I am researching the mixture of science and religion because the museum gave me a lot to think about. I think adults and good... More

Great place to learn more about Christianity. Lots of evidence that the bible is true. Very nice facility. Staff is friendly. Not very many people find this place it seems as their wasn't many people there. There is a $7 charge per person but visit groupon for a 2 people for $7 deal!

We have been here numerous times and there is a lot of information. Contrary to what someone might think there is an overwhelming amount of scientific, statistical and historical information in favor of intelligent design. They also discuss evolution and the flaws in the theory while backing it up with evidence. Great resource and difficult to have blind faith in... More

This is a great place to visit and get the other side of the story. The people are very accommodating and the new tabernacle section is outstanding.

Educational, fun, nice displays. They had open house, so it was a special event, but it's open all the time. Creation is the message, which I believe. They have souvenirs, books, toys, etc. for the kids to buy, and some can be pricy, but they have a beautiful facility and don't charge an entry fee.

The biggest load of fantasy and mis-information I have ever seen. Great place to have a good laugh at what some people will accept as "science" though.

Wonderful to be able to go to a museum that reinforces what the Bible teaches! Wish the exhibit were a little more interactive and not as much pure reading - my pre-teens did get bored after awhile. Liked the tabernacle presentation, only wished it has been more biblically informative, rather than more evangelical in nature. Worth the price of admission!
