Adam and Eve live in the Garden of Eden. Children play and dinosaurs roam near Eden’s Rivers. The serpent coils cunningly in the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Majestic murals, great masterpieces brimming with pulsating colors and details, provide a backdrop for many of the settings. All shows are included with admission EXCEPT the Planetarium.

Walk through the Garden of Eden. The Tree of Life, central to the garden, stretches out its branches, laden with ripened fruits. Come face-to-face with a sauropod, a dinosaur of incredible dimensions. His monstrous frame moves through the low-lying thicket as he grazes on plants. Introduce yourself to our chameleons. Walk through the Cave of Sorrows and see the horrific effects of the Fall of man. Sounds of a sin-ravaged world echo through the room. Finally, see the sacrificial Lamb on the cross, and the hope of redemption.

Your visit to the Creation Museum is not complete without viewing The Last Adam.

Men in White - Meet Wendy. This intelligent young woman has heard the constant barrage of evolutionary ideas about the world, but the more she thinks, the more she sees that what she’s been taught doesn’t make sense. She ponders some of the most important questions of life: What is the truth about where we came from? Is there meaning? Is there really a God, or did this all just happen by chance? Suddenly, Gabe and Mike, two contemporary angels, "descend" to help her. Get ready to join Wendy, and experience the exciting truth of Genesis like never before! Prepare for some fun and some surprises. Prepare to believe.

The Ark Encounter is the largest timber frame structure in the world, built from standing dead timber, in part by skilled Amish craftsman. The Ark is an architectural and engineering wonder containing three decks of world-class exhibits. Scores of exhibits about the Flood, Noah, and the animals are designed to answer your questions about the biblical account of Noah’s Ark. Many of the animals that lived during Noah’s lifetime didn’t look much like the animals we see today.

Prepare to have your expectations challenged by a host of incredibly lifelike sculpted animals, along with exotic live animals from around the world in Ararat Ridge Zoo. Plus, you’ll learn how Noah could have cared for all the animals and how the Ark was big enough to fit them all on board.

Be transported back in time to meet Noah and his seven other family members, who lived aboard the Ark and cared for all the animals during the Flood. See what their living quarters may have looked like, what they could have brought on board, and even what kinds of clothing they wore. There are hundreds of legends from around the world that are all centered on a worldwide flood. Did these legends originate in an actual historical event?

What happened to Noah, the animals, and the Earth after the Flood? Find out the answers to these questions and more at Ark Encounter. Be sure to take time to visit the vast gift shop and eat a meal at Emzara’s Kitchen, a 1500 seat two story restaurant.

This self-paced tour does require walking but there are benches available for resting. Elevators are available as well as gently sloping ramps to get from one floor to the next. For elevator usage, contact a guest services representative.

East Village As you walk through the East Village, located on the stern side leading up to the life-size Noah’s Ark, you will notice six large steles. Do you know what a stele is? In ancient cultures, it was an upright monument stone, sculpted and inscribed, often for significant purposes. These steles provide you with a summary of Genesis chapters 1–6 as you prepare to enter the Ark. While the stones use hieroglyphs to give the true history of the world, explanatory signs accompany each stele. Several topiaries, which are sculpted wire statues filled with moss, are scattered around the lake in front of the Ark with more to come. The East Village will also house several live animal exhibits as well. Each day, the live bird exhibits get closer to being completed. These will be home to very colorful, vocal species of the parakeets, conures, lovebirds, and parrot or cockatoo kinds. They will also have a mammal yard where you will see a variety of goats.

Ararat Ridge Zoo is located outdoors behind the Ark. See Yaks, Kangaroos, Zebra, Alpacas, Emus, Ostrich, Goats and much more. Camel and Donkey rides available for an additional fee in late spring and summer, weather permitting.
