What to know before you visit
When God created Adam, he placed him in the Garden of Eden. Before His crucifixion, Christ prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane. Isaiah 58:11 reads “The Lord will guide you continually . . . you shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.” Gardens are mentioned numerous times in the Scriptures. Given the size of the property God gave us, it only seemed appropriate to add a garden to the Creation Museum, and our gorgeous Botanical Gardens are the result.
Join one of our expert gardeners on a guided tour of the grounds. Learn about the planning and design that went into the stunning displays. Observe plants from around the world. Study flora mentioned in the Bible. Get help identifying your favorites. Whether you’re an amateur enthusiast or have a green thumb and years of experience, you’ll love this up-close look at the “Beauty in Blooms” at the Creation Museum.
This program is free with paid museum admission or museum membership and is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Children under age five will not receive an audio device. This tour takes place only if weather permits.
