Due to public health efforts to contain COVID-19, the Ark Encounter and Creation Museum are temporarily closed until April 20 or later.
The Creation Museum is full of dinosaurs!
Families can join Buddy Davis on a guided tour of the Creation Museum as he shares his knowledge of dinosaurs. Of course, there’s a lot that we don’t know about dinosaurs—like skin color—because we’ve never seen a living one, and fossils don’t come with tags. Buddy will explain that what we think we know about dinosaurs depends on our interpretation of “fossil facts” and our worldview.
He’ll also tell you how he designs, forms, and finishes his dinosaur sculptures. Just ask him how he placed the wrinkles on his T. rex! Speaking of asking, you’ll have a chance to pick his brain during a question time at the end of the tour. This tour is fun for all ages as you learn about the Creation Museum dinosaurs “on tour” with Buddy Davis.
Tour participants wear an audio device enabling them to easily hear the speaker. If you would like to participate in one of our tours and desire an ASL interpreter, please contact us a least one month in advance so that we can make arrangements to meet your need.
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.
