The Ark Encounter and Creation Museum are reopening on June 8! Note that dining, theaters, and other offerings have been enhanced to help you stay healthy.
What to know before you visit
Sit back and be amazed as the planetarium projector displays vividly realistic images upon a 30-foot-diameter dome, allowing stargazers to travel anywhere in the universe. Enjoy learning from scientists and astronomers who affirm young-earth creation and explain how what we see in the night sky confirms God’s Word in Genesis.
The planetarium is closed for renovations beginning November 4. Intelligent designers are hard at work on important upgrades. When the planetarium reopens, the stars will shine even brighter!
Planetarium shows play approximately every 40 minutes throughout most of the day. The run time for each show is around 23 minutes. Separate timed tickets are required. Single show tickets are $9.00 and additional shows are $5.00. Check printed daily schedule at the Creation Museum for show times, or see our online calendar under the listing of regularly scheduled programs. It is helpful to line up 15 minutes early. All shows start promptly.
Visit stars, nebulae, galaxies, superclusters, and more as you tour the known universe. This planetarium show will give you a better understanding of the immensity of the universe and the power of the One who created it. Do you like what you see? Pick up a copy of the DVD when you visit the museum.
Astronomer Dr. Danny Faulkner has produced a new planetarium show called “Aliens: Fact or Fiction?” Travel the universe looking for answers, and meet some new friends who have lots of questions: Are we alone in the universe? Does life exist on other planets? Did your neighbor really see a UFO? Are there answers in the Bible?
Have you ever looked up at a clear night sky, marveled at all the stars, and wondered which ones you were seeing? Would you like to view the rings of Saturn, the moons of Jupiter, or a galaxy or nebula?
Then Stargazer’s Nights are for you! These programs take place in the Stargazer Planetarium and Johnson Observatory at the Creation Museum, led by creation astronomer Dr. Danny Faulkner.Learn More
