Two-Day Visit Option

All Creation Museum tickets are valid for two consecutive days. That means you can now tour the museum the day of your arrival, which is a great option for the groups that have to leave early the next morning. If you do choose to tour the museum the day of your arrival, you will pick up your General Admission tickets from the front desk. (If you do not tour the museum the first day, we will distribute your tickets during breakfast of your second day.) You will be on your own to tour the Creation Museum and Botanical Gardens; however, once 6:00 p.m. comes, and the museum closes, you must depart the property (it is a great time to go eat dinner). At 7:30 p.m. you can return and begin your overnight program! During the second day of your visit, you will be free to continue touring the museum once the overnight portion of your visit is complete (after your Planetarium show).

Please mention this two-day option when discussing your schedule with the overnight coordinator if you would like to take advantage of this opportunity.
