In March I mentioned some places we have visited in the Northeast and then some in the Southeast and Central States. These are some we have visited or heard of in the West. I would appreciate hearing from you about your experiences with any of these or with others I don’t know about.
Creation and Earth History Museum. – Santee, California
This museum was designed, built and operated by the Institute for Creation Research for nearly 20 years. Upon the Institutes move to Dallas, Texas, the museum, along with the building, was sold to Scantibodies Laboratory, Inc. Tom Cantor, the founder and owner of Scantibodies Laboratory, along with his wife Cheryl formed a non-profit ministry called Life and Light Foundation, from which to run the museum. Now owned and operated by the Life and Light Foundation, the museum will remain a showcase for a literal six day young earth creation model, as well as expanding the emphasis on the incredible design found in that creation. With plans for future expansion of the museum and resource center, Life and Light Foundation looks forward to continue serving the Christian community.

Cabazon Dinosaurs – Cabazon, California
This fun display and museum includes static and moving dinosaurs along with factual information provided by scientists around the world. The informational signs contain facts regarding the history of the world, dinosaurs and man. It was begun in the 1960s by Knott’s Berry Farm sculptor and portrait artist Claude K.Bell to attract customers to his Wheel Inn Cafe, which opened in 1958. Dinny, the first of the Cabazon dinosaurs, was started in 1964 and created over a span of eleven years. Bell created Dinny out of spare material salvaged from the construction of nearby Interstate 10 at a cost of $300,000. The biomorphic building that was to become Dinny was first erected as steel framework over which an expanded metal grid was formed in the shape of a dinosaur. All of it was then covered with coats of spray concrete. A second dinosaur, Mr. Rex, was constructed near Dinny in 1981.

7 Wonders Creation Museum – Silver Lake, Washington
Catastrophic change at Mount St. Helens is the theme of the 7 Wonders Creation Museum. Services include professional displays, presentations, creation resources and guided hikes. Secular geology has long supported evolution by arguing that the earth changes slowly over millions of years. At the Museum you will learn how layering and canyons were formed quickly by ash fall, mud flows and pyroclastic flows. Astonishingly, a mini Grand Canyon was carved in hours. The Museum’s bookstore contains the largest selection of creation titles known in the northwest. This museum near Mount St. Helens, uses the volcano’s 1980 eruption to show that geologic change can happen on a rapid scale, and that changes believed by mainstream scientists to take millions of years can occur in as short a period of time as hours or days.

Big Valley Creation Science Museum – Big Valley, Alberta
Built from the foundations up, for the glory of the Creator, to display the evidence of his handiwork and refute the lie of evolution. The “Dinosaurs and Humans” display shows considerable evidence that not only did dinosaurs exist recently, but that humans existed with them. This evidence is fatal to the evolutionary dogma which has dinosaurs extinct at least 60 million years before humans evolved. The fantastic “Fossils and the Flood” display contains only genuine, museum quality fossils and a giant model of Noah’s ark. Come find out why these fossils present profound evidence for the flood of Noah. In the “Evidence From Geology” display we deal with the geological column, the fossil sequence and profound evidence for a past, global flood such as the Quartzite boulders of the Cypress Hills in Alberta and Saskatchewan.
