Our expanded Fearfully & Wonderfully Made exhibit is now open! Beautiful baby models, stunning special effects, and detailed biblical and scientific teaching will have you marveling over how God knit each of us together in our mothers’ wombs.
The Bible informs us that every human being from the moment of fertilization is made in God’s image, both male and female. This is true regardless of one’s level of development, physical or mental ability, ethnicity, or age. Although issues regarding life in the womb are hotly contested in our world, the matter is settled by the ultimate authority: the very words of our Creator. The Fearfully & Wonderfully Made exhibit calls attention to biblical and scientific truths about the unborn while pointing guests to the hope and forgiveness that can only be found in the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Psalm 139 says of the unborn baby, “Wonderful are your works.” Our artists have created 12 exquisite baby models that show God’s jaw-dropping handiwork in the development of a child from the fertilized egg through birth. A special lighting effect, known as “Pepper’s ghost,” gives visitors a sneak peek at the baby’s developing bones and internal organs.
Featuring lifelike baby models, a fascinating developmental timeline, teaching from a biblical and scientific perspective, touching true stories of adoption and healing, and a powerful gospel message, this exhibit will have you saying with the psalmist, “I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.”
A sculpted model baby, four times the scale of a newborn, and detailed animation show the intricate process God designed to ensure the baby receives nourishment from the mother through the placenta.
Follow the journey from fertilization through birth in fascinating new animations, including the remarkable changes that must take place in mother and baby within a few minutes of birth—or else neither would survive!
