Celebrate the Fourth of July with your family this weekend at the Creation Museum and our sister attraction, the Ark Encounter! If you are currently serving or you’ve served our country in the armed forces, we want to show our appreciation by offering several discounts. Learn how you can take advantage of these offers below.

Free Admission on July 4, 2021

In honor of the Fourth of July, we are offering free general admission to all veterans and active-duty members of the military who visit the Creation Museum or the Ark Encounter on Sunday, July 4, 2021. We thank you for your service!

Flags at the Creation Museum

And don’t forget: all children 10 and under enjoy free admission to both attractions as well in 2021! There’s no limit to how many children can come free, though the children must be accompanied by at least one adult. These special admissions are available only for on-site ticket purchases and may not be combined with any other promotional offers or discounts.

Year-Round Military Discount

All active-duty members of the United States Armed Forces (Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard) receive a 20% discount off the purchase of up to five general admission tickets (adult or senior) with a current military photo ID or military dependent ID (not available online).

We also extend a 20% discount to retired members of the armed forces and veterans (not available online). This discount applies only to the former military member, not to family members.

Red, White & Bluegrass at the Ark

On July 4, 2021, you will also have the opportunity to enjoy a bluegrass concert featuring Dr. Steve Pettit (president of Bob Jones University) along with five university students. BJUgrass will be performing a special free concert in the Answers Center at the Ark Encounter. This one-hour concert starts at 6 p.m., and parking is free after 4 p.m. if you are only attending the free Independence Day concert.

Since 2017, BJUgrass has been bringing enjoyable and quality bluegrass music to churches and venues all over the Eastern United States. BJUgrass strives to produce music that allows them to glorify God with their talents while spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ.


The group will also be performing during our daily programming on July 3 and July 5, 2021, as well (included with your Ark Encounter admission). Be sure to check your daily schedule when you arrive for concert times.
