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 point has to come together. No one person has the answer. This Science center is... 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 a professor will come in to talk about topics such as geographic evidence for a... 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 faith to believe in evolution than creation. Having said that, all tours are guided, and... More

I love fossils and if you love fossils you don't want to go here. This place is a joke. It's sole purpose is to gently , at first, introduce the 5000 year theory and then hit you over the head with it. They have a policy that a refund is possible if you have your ticket so I suggest putting... 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.

I am outraged at the manipulative way in which I was sucked in to paying for admission to a place that has no scientific basis. This is a religious center promoting a religious belief in the creation of the earth. There is no interest here in scientific thinking here. I wish I had checked Trip Advisor before wasting my money.

I can't believe they call this place a science center. As a science lover I felt so sad after leaving this place. A quick Google search on items (like Inca burial stones) or evidence for "how old is the Grand Canyon" will show that these are religious people who are trying to twist things around to make them fit with...
