Behind the Scenes of the Creation Museum Upgrade

by Creation Museum on June 20, 2019

Here at the Creation Museum, we are continually working on upgrades, and the next renovation is in full swing. This will see the creation and installation of stunning new exhibits that take a look at the state of our contemporary culture. It will feature excellent teaching and interactive experiences to equip and challenge our guests as they begin their tour of the museum!

Here are 20 behind-the-scenes pictures to show you what we’ve been hard at work on over the last few months.

We can’t wait to see how all of these elements come together! We’re very excited about these new improvements. They will not only be part of our latest massive upgrade for the museum, but they will also help present the clear teaching of God’s Word to the church and the world even more powerfully than they do now.
