Every day thousands of individuals and families visit the Ark Encounter and Creation Museum in Northern Kentucky, enjoying everything we have to offer at the world’s leading Christian themed attractions. Many of our guests are surprised when they visit by how much is included free with their admission because we really do offer you an incredible amount of value with your ticket.

Ark Encounter
There’s so much to do at both attractions that you need at least one day to enjoy each. But often a day isn’t enough!

There’s so much to do at both attractions that you need at least one day to enjoy each. But often a day isn’t enough! That’s why we’re now offering a new “Bouncer” pass. This pass lets you “bounce” between the attractions with unlimited access to both the Ark and museum for three days within a seven-day period. It’s a great way for families to come to Northern Kentucky to visit the Ark and museum while enjoying other local attractions.

Or consider our Ultimate Bouncer Pass—it gives an individual, couple, or family one year’s worth of “bouncing” (and free parking for the year is also included).

And, don’t forget: children 10 and under enjoy free admission this year. So they get to do everything I mentioned above that’s included with an admission ticket at either or both attractions totally free!

Plan your visit today at ArkEncounter.com and CreationMusuem.org.
