Another New Creation Museum in North America!
By Helena Lehman

August 10th, 2007 - Though it isn’t very well known yet, there is a new little Creation Museum that has just opened its doors in a quaint little tourist town in Alberta, Canada.

Following the lead of the Answers in Genesis Creation Museum that recently opened in Petersburg, Kentucky (, in the greater Cincinnati area, this smaller Canadian museum is making a valuable contribution to showing others that a special Creation by one Creator God is not only biblically taught, but can be scientifically supported.

With a real emphasis on Geology, this new museum is called the Big Valley Alberta Creation Museum. If is located in Big Valley, a small town at the end of a panoramic and historic old steam rail way that is frequented by tourists.

Big Valley is also near Drumheller, Alberta, another small town located in the midst of a world-class dinosaur site. See for information about visiting the area. As a result, the tiny town of Big Valley sees a good deal of tourist traffic (between 25,000 to 30,000 out-of-town visitors) throughout the year.

The tracks of the steam rail way extend from Stettler to Big Valley. This portion of track is owned and maintained by the East Central Alberta Heritage Society (ECHAC). Alberta Prairie Steam Tours ( in Stettler, Alberta rents the use of the track, from ECHAC, for their steam train excursions.

With the Steam railway, Creation Museum, and Dinosaur Valley as major attractions, Big Valley might be a great destination for a low-budget, and fun summer vacation. Big Valley is located mid way between Calgary in central southern Alberta, and Edmonton in the north.

To see some great photos of the displays in the Big Valley Creation Museum, and to learn more about it, you can visit their web page at When you do, don’t forget to scroll down to see the great little photo gallery!

This museum was brought about with the help of the world’s largest traveling Creation Museum, another Canadian-owned ministry. You can learn about them by visiting their web site at
