“I thought I knew the Bible.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

No matter how much you think you know about the Bible, the Creation Museum will fill your heart and mind with so many wonderful truths. The museum is located just minutes from I-275 at the corner of Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana. The facility has state-of-the-art presentations, a beautiful botanical garden, and such a fantastic staff (many that are volunteers) that you immediately feel at home. We heard from 3 speakers (live, not on a big screen) during our two-day trip and wished that they would have spoken for hours instead of just 45 mins. I will never forget my time spent there and hope to got back again later this year. Whether your a long time believer or just getting to know our God, this is the place to go.

“good experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

We were glad to see that the tickets were good for two days. The first day we walked through and looked at the exhibits. The second day we went to the planetarium and the Special Effects Theater. Nice selection in the bookstore as well. Each day there are new things to see.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

We visited with our son and daughter-in-law and two of our grandchildren. Through a number of informative displays, theatres and presentations, it walks the visitor through the Creation story in the Book of Genesis. For Creation believers as we are, it was an outstanding few hours spent and it was greatly enjoyed by our grandchildren.

In addition to the museum itself, the Creation Museum has beautiful grounds with picnic areas, a butterfly enclosure and a petting zoo with a camel ride. Our tickets were good for two visits and we certainly would have returned for a second day if our travel plans allowed.

“Very informative.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

A lot to absorb, but some very strong opinions. The gardens are absolutely beautiful! They also do a really cool Christmas special.

“Everyone should EXPERIENCE this museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

Everyone should experience this museum, but some, if not many, will not believe!! It is very well done. It is NOT a "disgrace to the scientific community" as one comment states. The scientific community itself disgracefully tells lies and puts them into our children's textbooks. Make no mistake about it. The public school system IS teaching your children a religion!! It is just a religion that does not believe in God!!

The fact is there are many reasons to believe in the Bible. This place does NOT hate science. Answers in Genesis uses science to prove creation. And, by the way, there is a lot more evidence for creation proven by science than "the big bang."

The museum staff are wonderful. The set up was well planned and takes you through creation. I really enjoyed the movies. They are short, but well done!!! Again, I know those that refuse to believe will HATE this place. How BIG is your GOD? Can he not create everything in 6 literal days? Why must you change or question your Bible based on faulty or even deceitful "evidence" given by a non-believing, God hating scientist (keeping in mind that there are scientist out there that do believe in God and refute the false claims of the other scientist. you just never hear about it.)?

However, the believer needs to understand the reason why it is important to believe in the literal six day creation as recorded in the Bible. I will end with a short "for instance." If we, believers, concede that the Earth was created over millions of years and that the dinosaurs roamed before man and were killed by an asteroid that hit the Earth millions of years ago, this makes God a liar. God said that MAN brought death into the world. How can death be brought into the world before man then??? Think about it!!
