Due to public health efforts to contain COVID-19, the Ark Encounter and Creation Museum are temporarily closed until April 20 or later.
ChristmasTown at the Creation Museum is just a couple weeks away! This year’s event starts November 29 and runs through December 30, 2019 (closed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day). We invite you to join us for two special events happening during ChristmasTown at the Creation Museum this year. Find out more below!
Discover Christmas, beginning in Genesis, as you explore the true history of the world and the fulfillment of the promise God made to Eve in this special family workshop. You’ll go through Old Testament history and clearly see Christ from beginning to end. This event is free (only pay for parking) as part of the ChristmasTown at the Creation Museum experience. Christmas Truths for Families runs December 3–6, 2019, at 5 p.m.
The students from Answers in Genesis’ Christian school, Twelve Stones Christian Academy, are putting on a special Christmas production, “Long Foretold,” at the Creation Museum on December 6, 2019, at 7 p.m. It’s a unique look at the wise men and their journey to worship Jesus. “Long Foretold” will answer your questions about the wise men: Were they at the manger scene? Why did they follow the star? Why were their gifts significant? And more! This event is free (You only pay $5 for parking).
When you join us for these exciting Christmas events during ChristmasTown at the Creation Museum, you can also catch a glimpse of the amazing events that surrounded our Savior’s birth with our live nativity. After that, walk through our botanical gardens immersed in breathtaking light displays, meet our animals in the Eden Animal Experience, enjoy a Christmas concert inside Legacy Hall, do a little shopping, and so much more. Entrance to ChristmasTown at the Creation Museum is free starting at 5 p.m. (You only pay for parking).
Looking to warm up from the winter’s chill? Head into the Creation Museum to experience our stunning exhibits and receive a collectible souvenir mug with unlimited hot chocolate refills the night of your visit. All of that for just $14.99 after 5 p.m.
Continue celebrating this special time of the year with a trip to our sister attraction for ChristmasTime at the Ark Encounter! See the life-size Ark lit up in rainbow-colored lights, glide across the Glice® skating rink, enjoy a Christmas buffet, shop for unique gifts, meet adorable zoo animals, catch an animated show that shares a Christmas message of hope in the Answers Center, and more!
We’re excited to announce that, as a way of showing our appreciation to our neighbors, we’re offering free parking for residents in eight counties surrounding the Creation Museum and the Ark Encounter (Kentucky’s Grant, Boone, Kenton, Campbell, Pendleton, Gallatin, and Owen counties and Indiana’s Dearborn county). Simply show us your driver’s license, and you can enjoy free parking.
This free-parking offer for local residents is valid, not only for ChristmasTime at the Ark Encounter and ChristmasTown at the Creation Museum, but through all of 2020 (this gives you free access to the grounds including the zoos, playgrounds, presentations, and more).
