What will your family experience during ChristmasTown this year?

Step back in time at our live nativity to view a realistic recreation of the events surrounding the night of our Savior’s birth. Reflect on the true meaning of Christmas as you watch Mary and Joseph with baby Jesus (Thursday through Sunday nights).
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.
The Eden Animal Experience is a fun place for children and adults to enjoy close encounters with our unique animals, including goats, alpacas, a wallaby, and more. And during ChristmasTown at the Creation Museum, you’ll be able to enjoy our zoo under the lights!
Head into the Creation Museum and catch our spectacular Encounter the Wonder show inside our 4D Special Effects Theater or The Christmas Star in our Stargazer Planetarium. Beginning with Genesis, Encounter the Wonder shares how God created a perfect world, how sin marred that very good creation, and how Jesus came as our Savior. It’s the gospel message, beginning in Genesis.
What was the mysterious “star in the east” that heralded the birth of Jesus and guided the wise men? Discover the truth about this special star in The Christmas Star!
