Visitors from public schools need to note that we do house the Creation Education Museum within our building.  This museum has exhibits that examine scientific evidence for intelligent design and present a critical analysis of evolution.  This museum, however, is not part of our regular community enrichment programming and is not used in our regular Science Adventure Tours unless requested.
