Creation Experience Museum Review

creation signOn July 13, 2013 our family was privileged to go to the Creation Experience Museum in Strafford, MO. Strafford is a very small town and I was very impressed that they had a really nice place in the middle of town for people to come and learn about God’s wonderful DSCF2596Creation. From the time we walked through the door, we felt very welcomed. We were offered to either join the tour that was going through the museum or to take our time and do a self tour. We decided to do our own tour.
One thing you do need to keep in mind this is only a small building, but they DSCF2586have packed a lot into it. There is items that are to big for this building and they are waiting to put those items into the big museum they are building in Branson, MO that they hope to open around December.
They have an aquarium with Giant Madagascar Hissing DSCF2587Cockroaches. Yep they are just as ugly as any other cockroaches.
They have a replica of the Tower of Babel and information all about the building of it and where the location of it was. To think that the area in the world that has so much turmoil today was once where DSCF2592the beginning really began. Yes, when you start really getting into science you also get into a lot of history and Bible.
They have a media room where students and adults can sit down and watch a movie. They have several different creation movies to pick from. The staff are really nice and offered their visitors to sit and DSCF2591watch a movie while they had something to drink and a cookie. It was a hot day and it was nice to be able to sit down and enjoy a nice cool area where the kids were learning about Creation and enjoying themselves.
As in every museum it was interesting to see artifacts and replicas of things I had heard about. Milton enjoyed seeing all the dinosaurs. One of the neat places in the museum was the cave area that they had. So many people believe that caves take million and billion of years when in actuality it is only a few thousand DSCF2601of years old.
We also enjoyed getting to see all the books for adults, teens and children. They had a neat little area for kids to sit and play with Creation toys while their parents shopped. Now if you are wanting to compare this to one of the big Creation Museum’s, DON’T! It is a very small “store building” and they have done a super job with it. In the media room they have a diagram of what the new museum in Branson will look like DSCF2593and it looks awesome. Yes, we highly recommend visiting this wonderful place.
