It’s been so exciting to see the number of people coming from all over America and around the world to the Creation Museum—we’ve been seeing thousands daily here in Northern Kentucky. Now, with our free ChristmasTown event, visitors are pouring in again (last year we had over 36,000 guests for ChristmasTown, and we expect many more this year). Since the opening of our Ark Encounter in the region, the number of visitors to the museum has doubled on many days—and even tripled on some days.
With lots of people come lots of cars and buses, and we need to park all of these vehicles somewhere. So for several months, we’ve been working on creating an additional parking lot. Despite lots of rain and having to work on the lot while also using parts of it to park cars, the first two phases are finally open!
Having the new parking lot has made ChristmasTown even better than before. This free family event, running each evening through December 30 (closed Christmas Eve and Christmas), features a stunning garden of lights, live nativity, and much more. In the past, we’ve had so many guests wanting to attend that we’ve had to park some people off-site and shuttle them to the museum, and, sadly, sometimes we’ve even had to turn cars away simply because we’ve had nowhere to park them. But this large new parking lot allows us to host even more people for our exciting Christmas outreach, one that’s become an annual tradition for many families.
This new parking lot holds hundreds of additional cars, enabling thousands more people and families to visit the museum this Christmas and throughout the year. We’ve also installed an automated parking system to help offset the cost of building the massive lot. Parking is now $5 for regular vehicles or $10 for oversized vehicles—which is quite inexpensive compared to most other comparable themed attractions.
We’re very excited to continue welcoming record numbers of guests to the world-class Creation Museum. If you haven’t yet visited, I encourage you to bring your family to be challenged and equipped with the message that God’s Word can be trusted from the very beginning.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
