Creation Museum Celebrates 17 Year Anniversary

Today marks 17 years since the Creation Museum opened (May 28, 2007) in Northern Kentucky. And, praise the Lord, we’re continuing to welcome more guests than ever as thousands pour in daily to the Creation Museum and the Ark Encounter (which opened in 2016).

Now, the Creation Museum has expanded and been upgraded since opening in 2007, and there’s more coming!

Here are the two biggest projects we’re working on right now at the Creation Museum:

  • The Eden Teaching Center at the Creation Museum, including:
    • An expanded zoo. Our new zoo is currently under construction and, when it opens, is going to be so much fun for our guests. We will have a wallaby walkabout, new animal exhibit areas (including some new animals!), and a new outdoor presentation stage (sponsored by Nutramax) for animal programs.

    • A conservatory. Four climate-controlled glass greenhouses with four different environments will house plants of the Bible. It will be the biggest conservatory in Kentucky.

  • Radiance, our new gender-identity exhibit. In a time when so many young people, in particular, struggle with questions of identity, I’m so excited that we have a beautiful new exhibit space coming that will focus on our identity as an image of God’s glory. This exhibit will apply unchanging biblical truth to one of the most hot-button issues of our day.

New Explore Programs!

We have more upgrades and expansions planned that you’ll hear about in the future. But I also want to highlight two other exciting additions here at the Creation Museum that your 11–18-year-olds can enjoy this summer and fall—two new Explore programs! This year, we’re offering an Explore Biblical Archaeology program—a half-day (July 26, 2024) of hands-on biblical archaeology teaching from an archaeologist—and an Explore Entomology program, a half-day (September 4, 2024) of teaching on insects from the real-life Dr. Crawley, the man behind our very popular insectorium at the museum.

Both of these programs have limited space, so I encourage you to get all the details and register your child today, on our website.

We’re doing everything we can to reach as many people as possible with the message of the truth of God’s Word and the gospel.

Yes, whether it’s outdoor expansions, new exhibits, or new programming—we’re doing everything we can to reach as many people as possible with the message of the truth of God’s Word and the gospel. We’ve been doing that for 17 years here at the Creation Museum, and we’re so excited to see what the future holds as we continue to do what God has called us to.

Bring your family (kids 10 and under are free!) to see everything the Creation Museum offers. Plan your visit at
