Schools all across the country are preparing for spring break. If you’re looking for a unique family vacation that will equip your family with a solid biblical foundation, consider spending your spring break at the Creation Museum.
The Creation Museum is located in a prime Northern Kentucky area within driving distance of cities like Cincinnati, Lexington, and Indianapolis. From museums to a horse park, from nature-themed locales to faith-affirming attractions, the tri-state has plenty to offer both kids and adults.
And we are thrilled to announce a brand-new pricing option that will allow you to more easily plan your extended vacation in Northern Kentucky. See what you receive with these new plans below!
We are now offering an unlimited 7-day pass option for families called the “Family Voyage.” This multi-day pass allows a family, defined as immediate family members (parent/legal guardian) and their dependent children 18 and under, to enjoy unlimited admission to both our sister attraction, the Ark Encounter, and the Creation Museum for seven consecutive days.
Your pass also includes these additional perks: free, unlimited “in and out” parking at both attractions during the 7-day period, one child (age 12 or younger) eats free at either attraction with one adult meal purchase (up to two children free), 10% off retail at either attraction*, and a souvenir entrance card for each member of your family.
We also are offering a “Married Couples Getaway” and “Single Adventure” multi-day pass for married couples or individuals. These passes include everything described above, except for a free child’s meal. These multi-day passes are a wonderful way of exploring everything the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter have to offer at your leisure since you can return as many times as you would like over the 7-day period.
No matter your interests, check out all you can do when you spend your vacation at the museum and the surrounding area.
