Living History Coming to the Creation Museum This Easter

on March 10, 2022

Living history is coming to the Creation Museum Easter weekend, April 15–16, 2022. What’s “living history”? It’s an exciting event for Creation Museum guests, featuring staff in accurately recreated costumes who give details on the historical background of Easter and Passover. And it’s a free event with your Creation Museum admission!

Easter Living History at the Creation Museum

Our Easter Living History at the Creation Museum will feature three special displays:

  • An auxiliary military camp with soldiers: You’ll discover how the military garrison of Judaea functioned under the Roman governors and why extra troops were needed in Jerusalem during Passover.
  • Living History Camp
  • A money changers’ table (like the tables Jesus flipped over in the temple in Matthew 21:12–13): This display will highlight how the temple tax system and the bank worked. Guests will even have the opportunity to change some of their “foreign money” for a half-shekel replica that would have been used to pay the temple tax.
  • Living History Money Changer's Table
  • A baker’s shop: Passover is observed during the Feast of Unleavened Bread, so many travelers would need to buy bread. Baker’s shops got busy! See a clay oven at work, and discover how family prep for the Passover meal would have looked.
  • Guests will enjoy interacting with the reenactors and learning more about Passover in first-century Israel—it will be a very unique experience! “Easter Living History” is included with Creation Museum admission, so plan your visit for Eastertime.
