Mark Your Calendar for ChristmasTown at the Creation Museum

by Creation Museum on October 8, 2020

It’s time to start making your plans to visit our 13th annual ChristmasTown at the Creation Museum! This year’s event will run Wednesday through Sunday evenings from November 27 through December 20, and every evening from December 21–30 (closed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day), beginning at 5 p.m. each night.

Here’s a glimpse of what you will experience when you join us to celebrate this special time of the year.

New This Year: Glice® Skating

If your family likes to visit skating rinks during the Christmas season, you won’t want to miss our newest addition to ChristmasTown at the Creation Museum. Take a spin on the Glice® rink, which has a type of synthetic ice that acts just like real ice. It allows you to skate regardless of the temperature. That means you can enjoy skating even if we have a warm night in Northern Kentucky during this event.

Glice Skating Rink

This unique Glice® rink has been a guest favorite during ChristmasTime at the Ark the past two years, and it is moving to the Creation Museum for 2020!

Spectacular Light Displays

Your ChristmasTown adventure will begin in the Garden of Lights in our beautiful botanical gardens! Stroll through the gardens amid the breathtaking display of thousands of multi-colored lights. Each year, we add new designs and more color throughout the garden trails, so your experience is never the same!
