Natural history museums and churches are public arenas for evolutionist and creationist stories. This chapter gives their numbers, educational roles, and histories of handling this topic. Major museums, such as the Smithsonian, are sampled and “cladistic” displays are discussed. The views of U.S. seminaries, theological responses to museum exhibits, and sermons on Creation are reviewed.
