The Big Valley Creation Science Museum is a creationist museum in Big Valley, Alberta, Canada. The institution is dedicated to promoting creation science and young-earth creationism as a faith-based alternative to biological evolution as presented in natural history museums. The institution is the first creationist museum to open in Canada.

The museum opened to the public on 5 June 2007 by Harry Nibourg, an oil field worker with little formal education. The museum measures approximately 84 square metres (900 sq ft), and cost C$280,000 to build. Exhibits include an interactive display about the bacterium flagellum, tracing how the ancestry of the royal family is supposedly connected to Adam and Eve, and how fossils are supposed evidence for the Genesis flood. The museum attracted 40 to 80 visitors weekly in 2007.
