What to know before you visit
Spring break is just around the corner! Many families plan a special trip together during this time off school. If you’re thinking you’d like to go somewhere together, plan on making it a vacation with a purpose by visiting the Creation Museum and our sister attraction, the Ark Encounter!
As you plan your spring break trip, keep in mind that kids ten and under enjoy free admission at both the Creation Museum and the Ark Encounter for all of 2020.
And we have plenty to enjoy both inside and out when you visit during the spring!
See our beautiful botanical gardens come back to life as the flowers begin to bloom and trees become full of green again! Surround yourself with the beauty of God’s creation on a walk around the Creation Museum’s grounds.
Our Children’s Adventure Area is a cutting-edge recreational experience, located near the Eden Animal Experience, that was specially designed for children of all abilities. That means it’s inclusive of children with various disabilities. We’re excited that all children will now have yet another activity to enjoy during their visit!
Kids and adults alike enjoy meeting our animals in the Eden Animal Experience! You’ll see a variety of animal kinds as you stroll through our family-friendly zoo, which is designed to give guests a hands-on experience with God’s amazing creatures.
Equip your family with answers to the questions of our day with cutting-edge exhibits. Our brand-new teaching exhibits present the message of biblical authority, different starting points, and the relevance of Genesis more powerfully than ever!
