Creationist museums are those that use the traditional natural history museum format to present a young Earth creationist view that Earth and life on Earth were created some 6,000 to 10,000 years ago and that the Earth was created in six days. These museums have been created to spread the belief in literal Biblical creationism and to reach out to those (including nearly 45% of Americans) who believe that God created humans as they currently exist within the past ten thousand years and that they do not share a common descent with apes. The museums have received heavy criticism from scientists.

The Museum of Earth History, in Eureka Springsmarker, Arkansasmarker, was described by The Guardian as "first dinosaur museum to take a creationist perspective" and was constructed as a joint venture of the Creation Truth Foundation and the Great Passion Play outdoor Biblical theme park, which attracts over seven million visitors a year to its 4,500-seat arena. Among the high-quality replica casts of dinosaurs are exhibits showing dinosaurs coexisting in the Garden of Eden with Adam and Eve. The mueum asserts that most dinosaurs became extinct during the Great Flood, and that while a pair of young dinosaurs accompanied elephants and lions on Noah's Ark, these went extinct later.


The Museum of Creation and Earth History in Santee, Californiamarker, part of the Institute for Creation Research, has been attracting 15,000 visitors per year, and had been considered the world's largest creationist museum by the Northwest Creation Network, until the title was taken by Kentucky's Creation Museum. The museum, established shortly after its parent in 1970, moved to its current site in the mid-1980s. The museum presents the view that all humans are descendants of the first humans created by God some six to ten thousand years ago and that a worldwide flood left behind beds of fossils that can be found all around the world, including on high plateaus and mountain ranges. The museum displays portraits of a selection of so-called "evolutionists", such as Andrew Carnegie who is described as "cruel and heartless in his own day to competitors and laborers alike" along with Karl Marx and Adolf Hitler.




The Creation Museummarker, opened in Petersburg, Kentuckymarker in 2007 and constructed at a cost of $27 million, includes exhibits of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden accompanied by dinosaurs. Fossils are said to have been created in the biblical Flood during the days of Noah. Plans for the museum date back to 1996. This museum has drawn criticism from scientists, who have circulated petitions accusing the Creation Museum of undermining education. According to Lawrence M. Krauss, a physics professor at Arizona State Universitymarker, "When they try to confuse kids about what is science and what isn't science, scientists have an obligation to speak out. There's no doubt that these are documented lies".

The founders of the 7 Wonders Creation Museum, located in Silverlake, Washington near Mount St. Helensmarker, use the volcano's 1980 eruptionmarker to claim 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. This scientific approach to creationism has been described as potentially plausible to non-specialists, due to its scientific basis. Academic scientists maintain that this interpretation of the evidence can only be supported by ignoring scientific method and any evidence that disagrees with a foregone conclusion.
