God loves variety! Nowhere can we see this more clearly than among the insects. You can see this variety at the Creation Museum on full display in Dr. Crawley’s Insectorium.
From the beautiful to the bizarre, insects challenge the idea of evolution. The incredible details of color and design stand as spectacular witnesses to our loving and imaginative Creator.
There are over one million identified insect species today, with probably many more to be discovered.
God created animals and plants with the ability to adapt to new and changing environments by equipping them with tremendous genetic versatility. This diversity prepared them for the “struggle for survival” that followed man’s sin and the dramatic changes in ecosystems that resulted from Noah’s flood.
In our world-class collection of insects from around the world, you will be transported into a world of staggering beauty, stunning acrobatic feats, endless variety, and spectacular weirdness. In Dr. Crawley’s Insectorium, you’ll learn interesting facts: for example, did you know that not all insects are bugs, but all bugs are insects?
Dr. Geoff Crawley is a real creation scientist who generously donated his insect collection to the Creation Museum in 2013. The collection represents a lifetime of collecting by Dr. Crawley, who began his interest in these creatures during a merit badge project as a kid. He would venture out and add to his collection wherever his travels took him.
“The goal of every collector,” Dr. Crawley says, “should be to share his collection with others.”
