The Big Valley Creation Science Museum is a creationist museum in Big Valley, Alberta, Canada. The institution is dedicated to promoting creation science and young-earth creationism as a faith-based alternative to biological evolution as presented in natural history museums. The institution is the first creationist museum to open in Canada.
The museum opened to the public on 5 June 2007 by Harry Nibourg, an oil field worker with little formal education. The museum measures approximately 84 square metres (900 sq ft), and cost C$280,000 to build. Exhibits include an interactive display about the bacterium flagellum, tracing how the ancestry of the royal family is supposedly connected to Adam and Eve, and how fossils are supposed evidence for the Genesis flood. The museum attracted 40 to 80 visitors weekly in 2007.

  • I consider myself to be an open minded person. I love to learn new things and to discover different points of view. I walked in there, hoping to learn something and maybe even be surprised but instead, it turned out to be a lecture for 2 hours where the man was "debunking" the science behind biology and evolution and never let me ask a question. He would constantly cut me off if I tried to talk. He is great at making people feel stupid, but not much else.
  • We went here after visiting the Royal Tyrrell Museum, and it was incredible to see the difference in both interpretations of existence. I'd highly recommend visiting the creation museum, so you can make an informed decision, instead of getting one side of the story force fed to you. Harry was also really funny - my son loved the antics, but truly, this man knows his history and science. We had a great in-depth chat about every aspect of life, which was honestly, quite fascinating.
