The Big Valley Creation Science Museum is a museum in Big Valley, Alberta, Canada, dedicated to promoting the young Earth creationist form of creationism, as an alternative to scientific consensus on evolution presented by the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology, also in Alberta, 35 miles to the south. It is Canada's first permanent creation museum.
The museum measures 900 square feet (84 m2), cost C$280,000 to build, and was opened on June 5, 2007 by owner Harry Nibourg, an oil field service worker. It hosts 40 to 80 visitors weekly. Exhibits include an interactive display of the creationist claims about the bacterium flagellum, trace the ancestry of the British royal family to Adam and Eve, and present fossils as evidence for the flood of Noah. It has been compared to the larger and more controversial Creation Museum in Petersburg, Boone County, Kentucky, which opened earlier the same year.
