ChristmasTown at the Creation Museum returns tonight and runs on select nights through December 30, 2022, from 5–8:30 p.m. So, while you have family in town for the holidays, load up the car and head our way to celebrate this special time of the year together! What will your family experience during ChristmasTown this year?
Get your camera ready as you head into the botanical gardens for spectacular light displays. The museum grounds will be lit up in a breathtaking display of multi-colored lights. Each year, we add new designs to the garden trails. Your experience is never the same!
On select nights, 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.
The Eden Animal Experience is a fun place for children and adults to enjoy close encounters with animals, including goats, alpacas, donkeys, pigs, 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 to warm up 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! Additional ticket required.
Warm up with a cup of cocoa and other tasty treats, or get a spectacular view of the lights while enjoying a delicious dinner from the heated deck at Noah’s Café (closing at 7 p.m. each night)!
Stop by the Welcome Center, Dragon Hall Bookstore, or the Legacy Store and check out our selection of apparel, stuffed animals, books, DVDs, toys, and much more. And don’t forget to shop our unique, handmade fair trade items as you walk through the portico. We have something for everyone on your list!
You can also pick up a few boxes of our Christ-centered Christmas cards to share the true meaning of Christmas with friends and family this Christmas season. These cards contain a scripture verse and a simple gospel explanation. You can find these cards (currently on sale) and ideas for Christ-centered Christmas gifts at AnswersBookstore.com.
Get a bird's-eye view of the colorful lights of ChristmasTown as you soar down the Screaming Raptor Zip Line’s special 3-line Christmas course. Zip line tickets are also available upon arrival (first come, first served).
Continue celebrating this special time of the year with a trip to ChristmasTime at the Ark Encounter! Take in the beauty of our life-size Noah’s Ark, Ararat Ridge Zoo, Rainbow Gardens, and grounds illuminated in a stunning sea of rainbow-colored lights, and enjoy dinner inside Emzara’s Kitchen.
During your visit, be sure to head into the Answers Center for Encounter the Wonder and A Family Christmas—an animated show, live music performed by TrueSong, a video presentation by the students of Answers Academy. Then head over to Animal Actors Stage to see Amazing Animals (a live animal presentation).
