For the Creation Museum Deaf Day, the museum’s shows, presentations, and special programs will be ASL interpreted or captioned. Interpretation will be available throughout the museum, and there will be a special Deaf-led presentation, too.
Captions will be shown all day in the Stargazer’s Planetarium, and captioning will be provided for the Men in White special-effects show. Volunteers will be available to assist with ticket sales, food ordering, and providing directions. We welcome back Deaf presenter, Calvin Farley, who will teach this year on Dinosaurs and the Bible! Deaf volunteers will also be available to assist Deaf guests with questions about the museum.
Two Deaf Days are better than one! The Creation Museum will welcome Deaf guests for the seventh annual Deaf Day on Sunday, October 14th, and the Ark Encounter invites Deaf guests for an awe-inspiring day on Saturday, October 13th.

After the Creation Museum Deaf Day, get ready for an eye-opening experience at the Ark Encounter on Saturday, October 13. This life-sized attraction in Williamstown, Kentucky is about 40 minutes away from the Creation Museum. You will be amazed just by seeing the size of the Ark, its craftsmanship, and visual life-like exhibits. Tickets can be purchased at the entrance or online.
If you would like to bring a group by bus, please contact Reservations at 800-721-2298.
If you are interested in volunteering for the Deaf Day you should complete both volunteer applications and indicate “Deaf Day” under Availability, as well as how you would like to help (interpretation, Deaf volunteer, and so on). Volunteers will have an opportunity to tour the museum ahead of time and receive a discount in the Dragon Hall Bookstore!
The Creation Museum is a very visual experience, and we have received good feedback from Deaf guests even when it’s not Deaf Day. Most of the videos throughout the museum are open-captioned. Closed-captioning is available for all Planetarium shows upon request. In the museum exhibits much of the audio is also available in writing. ASL interpretation is also available for your visit with one month’s advance notice.
If you have any questions about Deaf Day, please contact us.
