Christmas Is Coming to the Creation Museum

on September 14, 2023

Fall may be just around the corner, but our grounds crews are already hard at work stringing Christmas lights at the Creation Museum and the Ark Encounter. Because there are so many lights, they begin in August each year.

ChristmasTown Lights

Our grounds crew spends all fall preparing for ChristmasTown at the Creation Museum. Preparations begin in August.

By the time our Christmas programs begin on November 24, 2023, hundreds of thousands of lights will be twinkling around trees, dinosaurs, buildings, and so much more at both the museum and the life-size Noah’s Ark. We’re thankful for our dedicated crews that begin working early in the morning—long before guests arrive—months before our Christmas programs begin!

New to ChristmasTown at the Creation Museum in 2023

This year’s ChristmasTown at the Creation Museum will run Tuesday through Saturday, beginning Friday, November 24, 2023. This year’s event will add new Christmas programming for families on select nights, and our nativity is moving indoors to Legacy Hall.

Our nativity will be located in Legacy Hall this year.

Each evening will feature live indoor dramas on the stage in Legacy Hall and a special family-friendly program, Christmas Truths for Families. Trace the promise of Christmas through Scripture and make an ornament to take home!
