Are you looking for Christmas gifts? Give experience gifts


Christmas is right around the corner, and if you’re looking for unique gifts, consider giving experience gifts to those on your list. Experience gifts are a wonderful way to create incredible memories (and they don’t clutter up the house or get forgotten in a drawer!). Here are some ideas:

  • Response Conferences: Consider gifting someone on your list, whether it’s a parent, sibling, pastor, or friend, sign them up for one of our 2022 conferences, such as
    • Stand firm. This conference will allow participants to answer the questions that children face and ask themselves in today’s battle for truth. This would be a great gift for a parent, pastor or Sunday school teacher.

    • A family homeschooling experience. It’s a wonderful gift for the whole family! Five days of faith-building experiences include touring the life-size Noah’s Ark, meeting animals at Ararat Ridge Zoo during live animal programs, riding the carousel, walking through biblical history at the Creation Museum (including our brand new, expanded Terrifyingly and wonderfully made exhibition), shop our vast array of resources, take the kids to our world-class playgrounds, watch children’s eyes open in wonder as they learn more about God’s creation and the Creator, enjoy hands-on science and biblical programs for the whole family (available for an additional fee) and, of course, soak up practical, biblical teaching from sought-after speakers! Our 2023 speakers include Heidi St. John, Ken Ham, Alex Kendrick, Captain Barry E. Wilmore and many more. Registration is coming soon!

    • Answers for pastors and leaders. This conference is not just for pastors, although it makes a great gift for your pastor. It’s for all believers who want to be equipped to defend a biblical worldview. Speakers include Thanks to youof Phil Johnson and astronaut Jeff Williams, Darrell Harrison of Just Think Podcastand Emeal “E.Z” Zwayne and Mark Spence of Living Waters, with me.

  • 3-Day Bouncer Pass: A great gift idea for the whole family is a 3-Day Bouncer Pass for the Ark Encounter and Creation Museum. It is valid for three days of unlimited visits to both attractions in a week. Don’t forget that children 10 and under are free and that we offer special rates for teenagers.

  • Ultimate Bouncer Pass: Do you know someone or a family that loves learning, loves the Word of God, and loves hands-on activities? Get them an Ultimate Bouncer Pass for the Ark Encounter and Creation Museum. It is valid for 12 months (from the first visit) of unlimited admission, as well as free parking. It’s a great way to enjoy concerts, oral presentations, hands-on programs, our zoos, playgrounds, carousel, exhibits and more!

  • A one-year subscription to our streaming platform Answers TV is just $39.99 and gives a family unlimited access to over 5,000 videos (and more to come!), including nature programs, science activities, children’s programs, lectures, and much more. Thanks to the programs of Answers TV, you will discover more about the Word of God and the world of God by delving into the Scriptures and applying them to the world around us.

Come for Christmas

And, while you’re thinking about Christmas, consider bringing your family and friends to the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter for our two great Christmas programs, both of which offer a different Christmas experience for the whole family.

Starting the day after Thanksgiving (November 25, 2022) on select nights until December 30, you’ll enjoy stunning light shows (hundreds of thousands of lights), carols, a live nativity scene, and more.

At the Rencontre de l’Arche, during Christmas, let yourself be dazzled by

  • magnificent lights throughout the park,
  • a traditional Christmas carol and other music in the warmth of the 2,500-seat Answers Center,
  • our Meet the Wonder To display,
  • rides (free),
  • and more!
