Answers are important. If children aren’t given answers to their questions about Scripture and the history it reveals, they cannot defend their faith against a fallen world. These fun and interactive workshops are designed to provide children with the answers they need. Our programs examine such timeless topics as dinosaurs, fossils, biblical history, and more.
Discover the first Christmas from the perspective of the Bible’s true history. Families will experience an engaging, educational, and action-packed hour as they discover the identity of God’s greatest gift. Children will also enjoy the opportunity to make a fun craft that will help them remember that, nearly 2000 years ago, Jesus was born in Bethlehem, the first Christmas Town. This seasonal workshop is only available in the month of December.
Do your children love fossils? Are they always picking up rocks and asking what they are? This program focuses on the importance of fossils and what they teach us when understood from a biblical viewpoint. Every child will have the opportunity to make his or her own shark’s-tooth necklace to take home as a reminder of what was learned.
This interactive session about the marvels of Creation Week will fascinate kids. Using a giant magnetic puzzle and a series of seven large mystery bags, the presenter keeps children’s interest as the lesson unfolds. A craft will reinforce the content of the hour, and every child who learns the key phrases for Creation Week will walk away with a special souvenir!
Monkeys are fun for kids of all ages, but they become serious business when some scientists claim human beings came from apes! In this entertaining and interactive workshop, kids will learn that Lucy and other so-called ape men are not in the human family tree. Instead they will understand people were created specially in God's image. Workshop participants will make a cool “God Made Me” zipper pull to take home.
Explore fascinating questions and solid biblical answers in this exciting adventure with Noah’s Ark. Kids will love this interactive, informative workshop that is packed chock-full of visuals, surprises, and biblical truth. They will also have the opportunity to make a craft that will become a keepsake souvenir of their visit to the Creation Museum.
The inspiring Discover the Truth workshops feature the talented Dr. David Menton who holds a PhD in cell biology from the Ivy League Brown University. He was associate professor of anatomy for many years at the respected Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. His rigorous application of scriptural truth and scientific principles enhance the learning experience for audiences of all ages.
We often hear the expression that “beauty is more than skin deep.” While this is certainly true, there is amazing beauty to be found in the design of skin itself. Few people are aware of all the essential functions the skin performs. In this presentation Dr. Menton examines the marvelous complexity of human skin using electron micrographs and a light microscope. Join us and discover that truly, Beauty Is Skin Deep.
David declared in Psalm 139:14, “I will praise you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” The human body is truly a great Body of Evidence for God’s creative power. Join Dr. Menton as he explores the human body in this fascinating workshop.
Evolution? Not a chance! Using magical illusions to demonstrate mathematical probabilities, Dr. David Menton illustrates the improbability of evolution. There is statistically no way that the complex molecules of living systems arose by accidental, random processes. Join us for Evolution, Not a Chance!
Evolutionists commonly claim that birds evolved from dinosaurs based on the similarity between feathers and reptile scales. In this workshop Dr. Menton will show you that nothing could be further from the truth. After handling feathers and snake skins and observing them microscopically, you’ll be convinced that there is no way that reptile scales could have evolved into feathers. Join us and discover for yourself that birds were Formed to Fly!
Enter the world of the microscopic with the intrepid Dr. David Menton. Embark on a journey through a landscape filled with ferocious-looking creatures; watch as they move rapidly through the dense jungle of the living world that is their home, on the prowl for something to eat. And all this is found in a drop of water from the museum’s lake. You will be thrilled with this trip through the wondrously surprising micro-world created by our awesome God.
Please note this workshop is offered only during the warmer seasons.
Join Dr. Menton in this fascinating class on bone biology and discover the intricacies of our amazing skeletal system. You’ll examine bones at the microscopic, cellular level studying the elaborate structure that enables them to function. You’ll also learn how they fit together and work as whole in the human skeleton. Come have a blast, an Osteoblast, in this fun and educational workshop!
In this workshop, Dr. David Menton will help you make sense of your senses…well, two of them at least…your sense of hearing and of sight. Learn how these extremely complex organs function enabling you to better interact with the world around you. Join us for The Hearing Ear and The Seeing Eye and learn how the ear and eye couldn’t have evolved, but are truly evidence of a highly intelligent Creator.
In the workshop, Three Ways to Make an Apeman, Dr. David Menton will teach you how the facts have to be twisted in order to take fossil remains and declare them to be an apeman. Learn to distinguish an ape from a human and never be made a monkey of again!
