So a lot of people gave this place a bad review because of what they personally believe. That bothers me because this isn’t a place for you to do that. Just leave a review about the staff & the facility itself. So here we go!...More

Everyone has an opinion on how the earth was created. I doubt everyone believes 100% of what evolutionist say. I doubt every Christian believes 100% of what Intelectual Design says. But if you do believe in God, I would think Science and Religion at some...More

We have always enjoyed this museum. It looks small from the outside but has a whole lot to offer on the inside. They do a great job of showing the creation verses evolution argument. We have gone to many of the small evening events where...More

Of course most people that write negative reviews on this are evolutionists or just don't want to acknowledge that there is a God. A God, that one day, they will bow before and confess He is LORD. The evidence is so clear. It takes more...More

If you like your science non-scientific, this is the place for you. They feature creationism and intelligent design as an alternative to science, as generally accepted and taught in schools.

If you want the kids taught creationism, just take them to Sunday school. At least they are honest about the ulterior motove there. This place has nothing to do with science; False advertising.

This is not a science center- it is an anti-science center. I was so embarrassed to find out this was in our community. You hear about the giant creationist museum in Kentucky, but right here in Copley? Utterly mortifying.
