Travel back to the time of Noah as you enter the life-size Ark, built according to the measurements given in the Bible. The spectacular, informative exhibits will strengthen your faith in God and His Word.

Deaf presenter Calvin Farley will present “The 7 C’s of Creation” on the second floor of Emzara's Buffet. We are thrilled to have Calvin as our Deaf Days speaker for the fourth year in a row.

Walk through biblical history as you explore the stunning Garden of Eden, Noah’s Ark, the Tower of Babel, and more.

We’re happy to announce a new Deaf-led worship service on Sunday morning (10:30 AM in Legacy Hall). Join hundreds of other Deaf people in worship organized by one of our long-time Deaf volunteers. Afterward, captions will be shown all day in the Stargazer’s Planetarium and other programs. Skilled ASL interpreters will be available to assist all day.

Can I Help with Deaf Day?

Due to the huge growth of this event, more volunteers are needed! We need skilled signers who are very confident and competent communicating in ASL, Deaf volunteers, interpreters, and especially tactile interpreters and SSP’s! A very limited number of students can help, but you must be able to communicate with the Deaf effectively.

Don’t miss the special ASL workshop on October 12!

Required Forms for Volunteers

If you are interested in volunteering for Deaf Day you must 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!

Deaf Day at the Creation Museum

ASL Interpreters Workshop 2018

“Cruise Control: Using Routinization” by Claris Industrious, NIC

Friday, October 12, 6–9 p.m.
at the Creation Museum

Price: $40 includes a Creation Museum ticket! (valued at up to $35)

.3 RID CEU’s (pending)

This workshop focuses on the use of routinization and its effect on capacity (our ability to process at a comfortable level/rate of speed) and memory (our ability to retain information whether long term or short term for use in the process). We will pay particular attention to its use in the VRS, educational, religious and medical setting.

Call 800-721-2298 to register!


Do Deaf People Enjoy the Museum When It’s Not Deaf Day?

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.

What If I Have More Questions?
