If you are unbiased and have been in public school, this is a good museum to check out the Biblical story. Although there are also different views by Theologians, this museum teaches the Young Earth Theory.

The museum is very well done. Even though the website recommended at least 1.5 hours to visit the whole thing, we needed about 3 hours. There were so many exhibits and videos in a relatively small area.

I was surpised about hearing about this Museum as I live near by and never knew it existed. Occasionlly I drive on Hwy 67 and I would see a place with a big Dinosaur out side but I think I thought it was a childrens play center, never did find time to read the writing. I was invited on a... More

The museum itself is wonderful. It's informative and extremely well run and maintained. We are blessed to have this valuable resource here in Southern California for classes, guest speakers, events and field trips. We signed up for the Creation & Earth History museum's Anza Borrego field trip with Dr. Steve Austin and had an amazing time! The food and hotel... More

I have taken my family to the Creation Museum a few times now and am amazed at how much information is located in a smaller facility! Scientist's findings, solar system, the body and so much more that will increase your faith in God's creation!

This is an awesome museum. I took my 2 nieces and 1 nephew and we had a wonderful time. There is a lot to look at and learn. The history of the earth has never been told in the way you will find it at this museum! One piece of advice: If you are visiting with young children you may... More

Very interesting place, needless to say... Constructs the creationist theory very well, but as we all know this theory lacks a lot to be considered scientific. Trying to mixed science and religion, is really a bad idea. The museum is very nice, for what it is. It's in Santee, just outside of San Diego, something to see I suppose if... More

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
