The Creation Museum's Christmas Town offers a unique, in-depth look at the biggest holiday of the year - Christmas!
A free attraction, the popularity of the Creation Museum's Christmas Town has grown tremendously since opening in 2008. 25,000 visitors toured the exhibit in 2011 alone!
Witness reenactments of Joseph and Mary caring for the newborn baby Jesus in a first century house Nativity scene; listen as Elizabeth, the mother of John the Baptist, describe her experience of hearing about two famous birth announcements; hear as a temple guard relate his transformation from darkness to belief during a murderous mission to Bethlehem; encounter one of the magi and hear of his life-changing journey to visit the Child King.
Discover what modern archeology and learning has to teach us about commonly-held misconceptions regarding the birth of Christ as you view the exhibits. Many things that we once thought we knew about this incredibly important Christian event - such as Joseph and Mary trying to find a room at an "inn" - we can now translate and understand with greater clarity.
Visit the Stargazer's Planetarium to see The Christmas Star program and learn about the various theories concerning the mysterious “star” that signaled the birth of the savior. Take a walk in and discover our beautiful botanical gardens with nature trails transformed into a Garden of Lights by thousands of twinkling and arrays.
Of course, the rest of the Creation Museum will be open, too - the petting zoo offers the chance at a camel ride and the main exhibits of the Creation Museum can be seen for only $5.00 after 5:00 on each Christmas Town evening!
