Animal Encounters

Back to All Programs

Get an up-close look at some of God’s incredible creatures at the Creation Museum’s live animal encounters! Each animal encounter features a variety of small animals and is led by our knowledgeable zoo staff. You’ll learn about created kinds, habitats, and the role that each animal plays within its natural habitat. Please check your daily schedule for animal encounter locations.

These animal encounters offer a unique opportunity to see some amazing creatures from our collection that are not normally on display in the Eden Animal Experience.

All programs involving live animals are subject to change due to weather, availability, or unforeseen circumstances. Thank you for understanding.
