Celebrate Mother’s Day at the Ark Encounter

by Ark Encounter on May 7, 2021

Are you looking for a last-minute Mother’s Day gift? If so, we have several ideas that your grandmother, mother, and wife will love!

Spend the Day at the Ark Encounter with Her

To celebrate moms, we’re offering all mothers (whether by birth, adoption, or pregnancy), free admission to the Ark Encounter and our sister attraction, the Creation Museum, on Sunday, May 9, 2021. We hope many moms will take advantage of this special deal and get equipped to think biblically and have answers for the questions of our day—all during a fun day at one or both of our attractions.

Family at the Ark Encounter

And remember, children ages 10 and under receive free admission as well, so this is the perfect time to explore all three teaching decks inside our life-size Noah’s Ark, travel back in time with our virtual reality experience, catch a presentation or concert in the Answers Center, visit animals from all over the world in the Ararat Ridge Zoo, and so much more! (Some activities are an additional cost.)

Give Her Unlimited Visits

Give the special ladies in your life a gift that keeps on giving all year with an annual combo pass. With an individual or family annual combo pass, you can visit the Ark Encounter and the Creation Museum as many times as you’d like within one year, and you will also receive free “in and out” parking for one vehicle at both attractions. When you purchase an annual combo pass, you have even more time to experience all that both attractions have to offer, including access to over 80 concerts featuring over 40 different artists during our 40 Days and 40 Nights of Gospel Music at the Ark!

Register Her for Our 2022 Answers for Women Conference

Another wonderful gift idea for your mom, wife, or grandmother is registration to our upcoming 2022 Answers for Women conference, March 31–April 2, 2022, here at the Ark Encounter. During this conference, women will become equipped to stand rooted in the Word of God, right in the midst of a twisted generation.
