Dear friends of Answers in Genesis,
The spectacular planetarium at the Creation Museum with unique biblical and scientific based programs has had an incredible impact. It presents a clear contrast to the myth of stellar evolutionary teaching and proclaims unashamedly that God came to our little planet to save us from sin. Please watch this short video to learn what’s next for the planetarium.
Hundreds of thousands have been humbled, encouraged, and built up in their faith through the planetarium. Thank you for supporting our efforts to refurbish this God-honoring planetarium and bring glory to our Creator, Redeemer and Bright Morning Star (Rev 22:16).
Sincerely in Christ,
Phone, Mail, & Non-Cash Donations

Refresh of Stargazer Planetarium
Psalm 19:1 tells us, “The heavens declare the glory of God.” And here at the Creation Museum, we’ve been using the heavens to declare God’s glory for over a decade in our Stargazer Planetarium. Each person who attends one of our presentations learns how the night sky confirms God’s Word in Genesis. The planetarium has truly been a highlight for hundreds of thousands of Creation Museum visitors.
But now it’s time for a refresh.
