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

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

First, this is not at all similar to the Creation Museum in Ohio. More of a display of a lot of interesting things. It could be called the Taxidermy/Tool/Tidbits Display Museum. There's easily enough in this relatively small space to fill a 20-30,000 square foot...More

I would highly recommend this place to anyone, especially families with children. We did not have any small children but was still very fascinated by all the (small and medium sized/ reptile and fur) mounts. Although they do not sell admission tickets, this attraction is...More

Since it is free, it is a good deal. There is much else to do in Southern Pines so it is interesting to see. I wouldn't say it had much to do with creation. Looks like it a place for someone to display their personal...More

A good collection of stuff but not digging the "creationism" aspect. Science represents facts and is good to be educated in and believe in real facts.
