What to know before you visit
We are excited to welcome guests back to the Creation Museum in less than two weeks (June 8, 2020). We can’t wait! By the time we reopen, we will have been closed for almost three months, and that has given our skeleton staff of exhibit designers, artists, and fabricators who were able to stay on during COVID-19 the time to add new details to existing exhibits.
During this time, they were able to install an entirely new exhibit—our spectacular “ape kind exhibit.” Check out these photos of this incredible exhibit:
This exhibit is located inside our Starting Points room, beside the “human kind exhibit.” This placement enables museum guests to tell at a glance which skulls are human and which belong to the ape kind.
The australopithecine “Lucy” is the focus of this exhibit (along with other ape skulls), as she's been one of evolutionists’ “star” examples of supposed evolution. You will recognize her and the holographic images from our original “Lucy” exhibit. But, Lucy has had quite the upgrade!
Our founder and CEO Ken Ham recently interviewed the designers responsible for this world-class exhibit. You can watch that video below.
