What to know before you visit
The Creation Museum loves families! We offer discounted admission for Moms and Dads on special days, and kids ages 10 and under are free. Also, if you’ve served our country in the armed forces, we want to show our appreciation by offering several discounts.
To help spread out the arrival of our guests throughout the day, we're offering an online-only special ticket for entry at 1 p.m. or later—giving you up to 6 hours in the park. Each paid ticket purchased online includes a voucher for a free meal with a fountain drink, which can be picked up when you arrive. This special ticket is not available onsite at the gate and must be used by August 16, 2020. Yes, there really is a free lunch (or dinner)! Buy tickets.
Occasionally, the Creation Museum will offer unexpected special promotions or free days to correspond with snow days in the local area, school vacations, and so on. To stay updated on these and other special promotional offers, be sure to follow our blog, Facebook, and Twitter pages.
These special admissions are only available for on-site ticket purchases and may not be combined with any other promotional offers or discounts. Children ages 10 and under are free.
Active duty members of the United States Armed Forces (Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard) receive a 20% discount off the purchase of up to 5 general admission tickets (adult or senior) with a current military photo ID or military dependent ID (not available online).
We also extend a 20% discount to retired members of the armed forces and veterans (not available online). This discount applies only to the former military member, not to family members.
These discounts may not be combined with combo ticket purchases, other promotions, discounts, or offers.
