Christmas is right around the corner—and we’ve got the resources you need ready for you. Find Christmas gifts, cards, teaching, evangelism tools, and even a brand-new Christmas play (great for your school or church) on our online bookstore. And don’t forget about our incredible free Christmas programs taking place at the Ark Encounter and Creation Museum, beginning November 26, 2021.

I’ll highlight a few Christmas resources for your family and then fill you in on the details for ChristmasTime at the Ark Encounter and ChristmasTown at the Creation Museum at the end:

  • Christmas cards. These beautiful cards include a Bible verse and share the gospel message on the back.
  • 2022 calendar. Makes a great stocking stuffer! Our Animal Encounters calendar is really unique—each month has a QR code that takes you to a video featuring our animal presenters with an animal, sharing about that particular creature through the lens of a biblical worldview. It’s a great way to start conversations with others!
  • From Creation to Bethlehem & Beyond: This DVD features teaching from AiG’s Dr. Terry Mortenson, who explains that, in order to understand Jesus’ birth, we need to include creation and the second coming. The babe in Bethlehem is first our Creator, then our Savior, and then our coming King and Judge.
  • Happy Holidays: This booklet by Bodie Hodge is a great witnessing tool around Christmas and Thanksgiving.
  • Long Foretold: Get all you need for a children’s Christmas play like no other! Start now and have a wonderful, Christ-glorifying Christmas play ready for your church congregation or Christian school body. Learn more about this unique play in this interview with the play’s writers:

Make This Your New Christmas Tradition

If you’ve never been to ChristmasTime at the Ark Encounter or ChristmasTown at the Creation Museum, you are missing out! These free family events are loved by locals and those from out-of-state, many of whom return every year to enjoy the tradition and see what’s new.

ChristmasTime at the Ark Encounter features the grounds, lit up in a spectacular light display, including the 510-foot-long Ark itself in rainbow colors, traditional Christmas carols inside the 2,500-seat Answers Center, live animal presentations, and the spectacular Encounter the Wonder Christmas video on the huge, 70-foot-wide LED screen! Guests will also enjoy meeting the animals in Ararat Ridge Zoo. And this is all free! You only pay for parking.

Guests can also ride a camel, go back in time with our VR experience, shop for unique gifts, ride the zip lines, or enjoy a festive meal (ticket or purchase required for these activities). It’s a wonderful time for the whole family!

ChristmasTown at the Creation Museum features a spectacular garden of lights—one of the best light displays in the area! Find lit-up dinosaurs throughout the grounds, stroll around the lake, meet the animals in the Eden Zoo, reflect at the live nativity, take the kids to the state-of-the-art playground, and more. With a ticket purchase, you can zip over the lake or take a spin on our Glice (synthetic ice) rink. Or head inside for a festive meal, shopping, and our “What Was the Christmas Star” 4K planetarium show.

Both events are free—you just pay for parking. Find all the details at and
