Special Easter Programs Coming to the Ark Encounter and the Creation Museum

by Ark Encounter on March 24, 2022

Are you looking for a gospel-centered event to attend as a family for Easter? Join us at the Ark Encounter and the Creation Museum for our Answers Easter Weekend, April 15–16, 2022. This special event features “living history,” Answers in Genesis’ dynamic speakers, and live worship.

Special Easter Presentations

On Friday, April 15, 2022, and Saturday, April 16, 2022, AiG’s Tim Chaffey will present “He is Risen: Evidences of the Resurrection” inside the Answer Center. He’ll explain the importance of the resurrection, examine the “many infallible proofs” that Jesus rose, and critique the various theories proposed by skeptics to explain away the truth of the first glorious Easter morning. Our resident artists, TrueSong, will also be giving a special Easter concert.

At the Creation Museum, Dr. Georgia Purdom will share “Anatomy and Physiology of the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ” on Friday and Saturday. You are invited to experience Jesus’ journey from the Garden of Gethsemane to Calvary through a detailed analysis of his medical and emotional condition in addition to powerful clips from the movie The Passion of the Christ. You will be sure to gain a greater appreciation of Jesus’ sacrifice this Easter season.

Easter Living History at the Creation Museum

Living history is coming to the Creation Museum Easter weekend, April 15–16, 2022. What’s “living history”? It’s an exciting event for Creation Museum guests, featuring staff in accurately recreated costumes who give details on the historical background of Easter and Passover. And it’s a free event with your Creation Museum admission!

Our Easter Living History at the Creation Museum will feature three special displays:

  • An auxiliary military camp with soldiers: You’ll discover how the military garrison of Judaea functioned under the Roman governors and why extra troops were needed in Jerusalem during Passover.
  • TrueSong in Concert
  • A money changers’ table (like the tables Jesus flipped over in the temple in Matthew 21:12–13): This display will highlight how the temple tax system and the bank worked. Guests will even have the opportunity to change some of their “foreign money” for a half-shekel replica that would have been used to pay the temple tax.
  • A baker’s shop: Passover is observed during the Feast of Unleavened Bread, so many travelers would need to buy bread. See a clay oven at work, and discover how family prep for the Passover meal would have looked.

Guests will enjoy interacting with the reenactors and learning more about Passover in first-century Israel—it will be a very unique experience! Easter Living History is included with Creation Museum admission.
