Featuring the Creation Museum and The Ark Encounter

“Encounter the Wonder” of Christmas Time at The Ark Encounter. This ONE OF A KIND replica of Noah’s Ark is the largest wooden timber structure in the world.  The Ark includes hundreds of different displays, including mock-ups of animal stalls, recreations of how Noah and his family may have lived, and even an animatronic version of Noah that will answer questions. As the night falls upon the Ark guests will“Encounter the Wonder” when a world-class laser projection show will depict animals walking up the Ark ramp, the floodwaters rising, a cutaway of the Ark’s three decks so guests can peer inside, and the Christmas message in a striking fashion will light up the side of our massive Ark as its screen.

Be prepared to experience history in a completely unprecedented way at the state-of-the-art Creation Museum. The Creation Museum is an alternative to the evolutionary natural history museums. See how its interpretation of the Bible— “the history book of the universe”—provides an account of the beginning of all things. Explore ChristmasTown along with your visit to the Creation Museum. Stroll through the museum’s botanical gardens amid the breathtaking display of thousands of multi-colored lights. As you walk through the Garden of Lights, you’ll also encounter one of the Magi, a wise man who journeyed to Bethlehem to see “the one who was born King of the Jews” and learn of his amazing journey. With a live Nativity as the event’s focus on the museum’s beautifully decorated grounds, ChristmasTown presents the true meaning of Christmas as it provides guests a glimpse into the amazing events surrounding the wonder of Christ’s birth.
