14. CMT Final Leg

(3 Minute Read)

Coyote Mystery Tour

Today we finish our 9,150-mile virtual tour across the US and Canada, visiting creation museums in North America. We’ve completed 7,200 miles of the tour with almost 2,000 yet to go. Complete the round-trip tour by driving about 1,950 miles southeast from Big Valley, Alberta, Canada back to southern Michigan.

We visited 10 creation museums/shows along a round trip route from Michigan through Ohio, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah, Idaho, Montana, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, and Michigan. The tour passed through 26 US states and 3 Canadian provinces.

These are the 10 creation museums/shows that we visited:
1. In the Beginning show at the Sight & Sound Theatres in Strasburg, PA.
2. Creation Museum in Petersburg, KY.
3. Creation Discovery Museum in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.
4. Creation Adventures Museum in Arcadia, FL.
5. Dinosaur Adventure Land in Pensacola, FL (later moved to Reston, AL).
6. Noah musical at the Sight & Sound Theaters in Branson, MO.
7. Creation Evidence Museum in Glen Rose, TX.
8. Mt. Blanco Fossil Museum in Crosbyton, TX.
9. Museum of Creation and Earth History in Santee, CA.
10. Big Valley Creation Science Museum in Big Valley, Alberta, Canada.

Review Questions

The trip home would be a good time to review, especially if you have youngsters with you. Here are some questions that may be useful in reviewing and remembering what you saw and learned.

Can you list in order the museums we visited on the virtual tour?
Which museum had the most realistic displays?
Which museum did the best job explaining things?
Which museum would you like to work at some day?
What was the most impressive exhibit you saw?
What can you make at home to help people you know better understand Genesis and Creation?
What topics or issues do you want to investigate further?

Encourage your kids to talk about their memories of the trip, even long after it’s over. This will help cement the material in their minds.

August 10, 2019 Update:
More Creation Museums have opened since this virtual tour of North American creation museums was planned for the summer of 2008. I know of these three, but there may be more:
1. Ark Encounter in Williamstown, Kentucky.
This is a full-size Noah’s Ark, built to the Biblical dimensions: 510 feet long, 85 feet wide, and 51 feet high. The museum and grounds include scores of exhibits, a zoo, conferences, live presentations, special events, and zip lines.
Rebuilding Noah’s Ark is the first of a series of blog posts I wrote on the project.

2. Creation Experience Museum in Branson, Missouri.
Open 10 am to 5 pm. Free admission. Free guided tours of one to two hours walk through the Creation Week, Noah’s Flood, fossilization, and the Ice Age.

3. ICR Discovery Center for Science and Earth History in Dallas, Texas.
This museum is scheduled to open on Labor Day, September 2, 2019. It includes a planetarium, state-of-the-art exhibits, and regularly scheduled live presentations by ICR scientists and scholars that discuss questions like these: How do dinosaurs fit with the Bible? Was Noah’s Flood really worldwide? What caused the Ice Age? Speakers will help answer challenging questions of faith and science.

For Christ and His Kingdom. Soli Deo Gloria.

This is the final post in the Coyote Mystery Tour series of 14 articles on creation museums in North America. This was a vacation trip planned for the summer of 2008.

  1. I just discovered a creation museum that seems like a great destination, and that is the Mt. St. Helen’s Creation Center. They’ve been featured in articles by Answers in Genesis, and I may need to visit them and try one of the excursions they offer… as long as there isn’t another eruption!
