Camel Rides at the Creation Museum

by Ken Ham on July 20, 2015

Have you ever wanted to know what it would be like to sway across the desert on the back of a camel? Well, we have two camels of our own here on the grounds of the Creation Museum, and they are giving rides this summer seven days a week! You can experience the fun of riding a camel during your next visit to the Creation Museum.

Gomer and CJ live in the museum’s petting zoo alongside animals such as a zorse, a zedonk, alpacas, goats, and wallabies (a type of kangaroo)! A lot of teaching goes on at this wonderful zoo. As we explain to children and adults, there is an incredible amount of variation within an animal kind (Genesis 1:21, 24–25), and such variation is not evolution. You’ll certainly want to stop by the petting zoo before or after your camel ride to see, pet, and maybe even feed some of these animals.

Now, our camels Gomer and CJ can each carry up to 250 pounds, so often two people can ride at one time—one person in front of the hump and the other behind. It’s a fun and unique experience that you will certainly want to try. Kids especially love swaying along at the relaxed leisurely pace—but these tame camels aren’t just for kids! Moms and dads will enjoy the ride too.

For more information and to check available times to ride Gomer or CJ, please go here.
