Welcoming Groups | The Institute for Creation Research
Welcoming Groups

Since opening in September 2019, the ICR Discovery Center for Science & Earth History has welcomed groups both small and large. One recent group was Josh McDowell and his ministry team. Located in Plano, Texas—just north of Dallas—the ministry “serves and equips the Body of Christ in raising generations of purpose-driven Christians who know what they believe, why it is true, and how to live it out.”1

The group viewed a planetarium show about God’s creation in the solar system, explored Earth’s history in the exhibit hall, and attended Dr. Brian Thomas’ live science presentation on soft tissue discoveries in dinosaur fossils. Dr. Thomas also shared his Christian testimony and the evidences that led him to embrace biblical creation. ICR was pleased to host Josh McDowell and his guests, and we look forward to welcoming many more ministry, school, and family groups throughout the coming year.

Plan Your Group Visit

Who would you like to impact with the science that confirms creation? We encourage you to coordinate a visit to the Discovery Center for your church group, family reunion, or staff fellowship. We offer special rates for groups of 12 to 60 people. Let us know what you have in mind and we’ll help you plan a memorable, faith-building event. Go to ICRdiscoverycenter.org/groups or call 800.743.6374 for more information.

What Will Your Group Discover?

  • Planetarium shows, including 3-D options
  • Engaging exhibits that teach the origin of the universe and how science affirms the Bible
  • Animatronic creatures, special effects, and a chilly Ice Age theater
  • Fascinating facts about DNA and human ancestry, fossils and rocks, dinosaurs, and astronomy
  • Development and application of critical thinking skills while discovering the latest scientific research
  • A Bible-based journey through Earth’s history, highlighting scientific discoveries along the way
  • Special events including live presentations by scientists and scholars
  • A store full of creation-based science resources and educational kits
  • An outdoor area featuring a 24-foot DNA sculpture, sundial, and covered picnic tables

Yes, the Discovery Center is open, but we still need funds to fully complete this incredible ministry outreach. Go to ICR.org/donate/museum for more information. Partner with us in prayer and help us proclaim the truth of our Creator, the Lord Jesus Christ!
