Welcome! Thanks for stopping by! There’s a lot to do at the Creation Museum, so we want to help you plan your visit. Hours and admission prices are listed in the boxes to the right, and the additional information below will help you know what to expect when you arrive.
If you’ve never been to the Creation Museum before, the first thing you might want to do is to get oriented with a map and directions. The museum is within a day’s drive of about two-thirds of the U.S. population. Make sure that you also review our upcoming events and activities to decide the best time to come. We have a full slate of events every week.
Once you know how to get here, you may want to consider some of the other exciting attractions and quality lodging that the tri-state area offers (Kentucky, Ohio, and Indiana). You could easily plan a week-long vacation centered around at least one day at the museum.
Then you’re all set. Prepare to be amazed. Prepare to be challenged. Prepare to believe.
You could easily spend two days exploring the museum and the grounds. All tickets are valid for two consecutive days to help you take in the many special events. Also, the planetarium often sells out. Reserve your seats as soon as you arrive for the day.
In case you didn’t know, the Petting Zoo is included in the price of admission. There you can feed a zonkey (zebra/donkey), a zorse (zebra/horse), a camel, wallabies, and other intriguing animals.
Below are some of the amenities at the Creation Museum. Remember, our Guest Services Team is ready to assist you with any needs during your visit to the Creation Museum. The Guest Services Information Center is located in the Portico, near the building’s main entrance.
Guest Services offers both strollers and wheelchairs for the convenience of all visitors on a first come, first served basis. Due to limited space, only single and inline double strollers are allowed inside the museum. Umbrella strollers are available for a $5 refundable deposit. Manual wheelchairs are available for a $10 refundable deposit, and a limited number of electric wheelchairs are available on a first-come, first-served basis for a $10 non-refundable fee.
For information on wheelchair accessibility as well as hearing and visual accommodations throughout the museum, please see our Accessibility Accommodations page.
An ATM is located in the Portico just inside the front entrance. Ticketing, food venues, and the bookstore accept all major credit cards.
The Creation Museum’s restaurants feature a variety of delicious food offerings, including options for special needs. Check out our downloadable menus for details about vegetarian and gluten-free options. If you would like to investigate nutrition or ingredient listings, ask a food services supervisor about different menu options when you arrive. If you would like detailed information before your visit, please contact us at least a week before your arrival.
A family restroom is available on the museum’s lower level. A nursing mother’s room is also available on a limited basis (please contact a Guest Services staff member for more information). Changing tables are available in both men’s and women’s restrooms throughout the facility and grounds.
Guests are welcome to photograph and record all museum exhibits except for theater and video presentations. DVD versions of most of our videos are available for purchase in our online store or the on-site bookstores.
All service animals are freely admitted to the Creation Museum. Pets are not permitted in the museum. You may wish to find a local pet resort to house your pet for the day.

The Creation Museum is the most crowded on Saturdays, holidays, school breaks, and during the summer. If you visit on a Saturday, you can often beat the crowds by arriving early (before 10:00 am).
Guest safety is of utmost importance here at the Creation Museum. Our Public Safety officers are highly trained professionals whose main goal is to keep our guests and staff safe.
Contact any staff member in an emergency or non-emergency situation. Basic first aid services are available from the Public Safety Department (located on the main level in the hallway adjacent to the Special Effects Theater).
Basic vehicle assistance is available, from jump-starting to unlocking vehicles. Contact any staff member or Public Safety Officer if you need vehicle assistance.
There are times that the garden trails will need to be closed down for safety reasons. The Public Safety Department will determine what those times are. All possible measures will be taken to inform guests of such times.
Parents, please keep your eye on young children. Each year repairs are made to exhibits due to unnecessary touching, and this can also be a safety threat to guests. Please pay attention to signage on such exhibits. We do have special hands-on exhibits that children can touch all they want. Each year, we also have children with missing parents and parents with missing children. If your child is missing, please notify the nearest museum staff member. Our Public Safety Officers are trained in Code Adam.
The Creation Museum does have K-9 officers. Please note that these are working dogs and we ask that you not approach them to pet them or talk to them. Their focus cannot be diverted from their job.
