What to know before you visit
To accommodate the hundreds and sometimes thousands of guests who arrive each day at the Creation Museum, we employ a huge staff for the day-to-day operations. These employees make up our guest services, food service, petting zoo, accommodations, public safety, bookstore, housekeeping, accommodations, and audio/video departments.
With more than 2.2 million visitors since our grand opening in 2007—and with many of these guests arriving on the weekends and around the holidays—a special recognition and a word of thanks goes out to our wonderful staff members. They are willing to work these busy days for the enjoyment of our visitors from around the country and from around the world! With the museum closed only on Thanksgiving and Christmas, these fine folks have proven their loyalty and love for the ministry and outreach of the Creation Museum. Happy Thanksgiving! With the exception of a few people in the public safety and petting zoo departments, enjoy the day off with the family!
