This yearly event features Deaf volunteers and ASL interpreters providing live interpretation of presentations such as The Last Adam. Hearing guests are also invited, of course, and we expect you will enjoy watching the expressive communication of American Sign Language during the shows and throughout the museum.
Join us for Deaf Day, when the museum’s shows, presentations and special programs are ASL interpreted! Captions will be shown all day in the Stargazer's Planetarium as well, and captioning will be provided for the Men in White special-effects show. Volunteers will be available to assist with ticket sales, food ordering, and providing directions. Deaf volunteers will also be available to assist Deaf guests with questions about the museum.
You will also be able to enjoy Deaf-led programming provided by Deaf Missions! A team of Deaf college students from Deaf Missions has come for the past three years and performed exciting dramas, and the show is different every year! Voice interpretation is provided for our hearing guests as well.

Calvin returns to the Creation Museum in October 2016 to present on his favorite topic again—Genesis! After a year of completing his Master’s studies, beginning his career as an adjunct instructor of ASL at the University of Tennessee, and teaching the Deaf how to defend Scripture whenever the Lord opens the door, Calvin is excited to come back for Deaf Day.
Mark your calendar for Friday, October 14th and stay tuned for details and registration!
Pictures from past Deaf Days
The Creation Museum is a very visual experience, and we have received good feedback from Deaf guests even when it’s not Deaf Day. Most of the videos throughout the museum are open-captioned. Closed-captioning is available for all Planetarium shows upon request. In the museum exhibits much of the audio is also available in writing. ASL interpretation is also available for your visit with one month's advance notice.
If you are interested in volunteering for the Deaf Day you should complete our volunteer application and indicate “Deaf Day” under Availability, as well as how you would like to help (interpretation, deaf volunteer, etc.). Volunteers will have an opportunity to tour the museum ahead of time and receive a discount in the Dragon Hall Bookstore!
