ICR Discovery Center Update

This summer the ICR Discovery Center for Science and Earth History received a huge delivery! Three dozen feathered, furry, and ferocious animals traveled from Amherst, Wisconsin, to make their home here in Dallas, Texas.

Visit the Discovery Center when it opens next year and you’ll encounter some spectacular creatures throughout the exhibit halls. Keep an eye out for our proud peacock, 15-foot-tall giraffe, and surprisingly lovable Bactrian camel.

Some of the creatures represent original created kinds, so their design required some creative interpretation. For example, our Machairodus has traits from several big cats, including the modern lion, extinct saber-toothed cat, and Caspian tiger.

Help Us Complete the Exhibits

As we complete the building phase of the ICR Discovery Center, we’re raising funds for the interior exhibits. We’re developing the most educational and inspirational exhibits possible, pointing people to the truth of our Creator, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Visit ICR.org/DiscoveryCenter to find out how you can join us in this vital project. Partner with us in prayer and help us finish strong!
