Give a Gift of Experience This Christmas

on November 10, 2022

Christmas is just around the corner and if you’re looking for unique gifts, consider giving gifts of experience to those on your list. Gifts of experience are a wonderful way to build incredible memories. Here are some ideas to consider from all of us here at the Creation Museum, Ark Encounter, and Answers in Genesis.

Bouncer Passes

A 3–Day Bouncer Pass to the Creation Museum and the Ark Encounter is a great gift idea for a whole family. It’s valid for three days of unlimited visits to both attractions within one week. You can also add our special Bouncer Pass parking option when you choose this pass. The Bouncer Pass gives you flexibility in planning your visit and ensures you won’t miss anything while you’re here.

Fearfully and Wonderfully Made Exhibit

Or enjoy both attractions all year long with our Ultimate Bouncer Pass! It’s valid for 12 months (from the first visit) of unlimited admission, plus free parking. Enjoy concerts, speaking presentations, hands-on programs, our zoos, playgrounds, carousel, exhibits, and so much more year-round!

2023 Family Homeschool Experience

Another option for the whole family is our 2023 family homeschool experience! Five days of faith-building experiences include walking through biblical history at the museum (including our brand-new, expanded Fearfully & Wonderfully Made exhibit); soaking in practical, biblical teaching from popular speakers; enjoying hands-on, engaging science and Bible programs for the whole family (available for additional cost); shopping our vast array of resources; touring the full-size Noah’s Ark; meeting the animals in Ararat Ridge Zoo during live animal programs; riding the carousel; taking the kids to our world-class playgrounds; and watching the kids’ eyes open in wonder as they learn more about God’s creation and the Creator!

Our 2023 speakers include Heidi St. John, Ken Ham, Alex Kendrick, Captain Barry E. Wilmore, and many more. Registration is coming soon.

2023 Answers for Pastors & Leaders

Our 2023 Answers for Pastors & Leaders conference isn’t just for pastors—though it makes a great gift for your pastor. It’s for all believers who want to be equipped to contend for a biblical worldview. Speakers include Phil Johnson from Grace to You, astronaut Jeff Williams, Darrell Harrison of the Just Thinking podcast, and Emeal “E. Z.” Zwayne and Mark Spence of Living Waters, along with Ken Ham. Registration also includes seven-day admission to both the Ark Encounter and the Creation Museum and free parking.

Stand Firm Conference

This conference, taking place inside the Answers Center at the Ark Encounter on January 27, 2023, will equip attendees to answer the questions kids are facing and asking in today’s battle for truth. This would be a great gift for a parent, pastor, vacation Bible school leader, or Sunday school teacher.
