If you are up for an oddly strange, but unique tour, this is the place for you. I cannot even being to describe the odd things I saw and experienced while walking through the museum. If you go for just entertainment at a very odd...More

We visited while on summer vacation also paired the following day by the Ark Encounter! We all enjoyed reading and learning Bible Truths! For our son (10) this museum brought the scriptures to life!

So very well done in all aspects. This was our second time visiting. And we will return with all the grandkids next time. A real must see experience.

A strange tour through a collection of artifacts, memorabilia and attic finds with a religious backtheme. Some, if not all of the displays, offer hypocritical evidence of the underlying self-righteous religious message

An interesting collection of vintage tools. The stuffed animals are presented in the context of creationism based on a literal interpretation of Genesis. It is important to remember that this is a collection, not a museum. I did not take it very seriously which allowed...More

A incredible variety of taxidermy animals of all kinds! Amazing! Also just as incredible collection of antique tools - specifically hammers, levels, saws, drills, openers, wrenches and more. Fun! Don't miss the furry fish and the Jackalope!

Seriously, not a serious museum of any kind. There is not much of a display, and no one informative to talk to

We stopped in at the museum when we spotted it while strolling the streets of Southern Pines. It is in a shop which offers fudge, and the lure of free samples pulls a lot of people into the place, though we did not sample it....More

It is more a collection of taxidermy and interesting items versus a "creation" museum. Pay what you think it is worth in the collection box. Entrance is through a Christian store that has the best fudge in town!

This was more a random of collection of stuff (or junk depending on your point of view) rather than a professionally presented challenge to the evolutionary zeitgeist. If the museum curator is reading this he might consider visiting the Genesis Museum on The Hard, Portsmouth,...More
