For the Creation Museum Deaf Day, the museum’s shows, presentations, and special programs will be ASL interpreted or captioned! Volunteers will be available to assist with ticket sales, food ordering, and providing directions.
If you would like to bring a group by bus, please contact Reservations at 800-721-2298.
If you are interested in volunteering for the Deaf Day you should complete both volunteer applications and indicate “Deaf Day” under Availability, as well as how you would like to help (interpretation, Deaf volunteer, and so on). Volunteers will have an opportunity to tour the Ark ahead of time and receive a discount in the gift shop.
The Ark Encounter is a very visual experience, and we have received good feedback from Deaf guests even when it’s not Deaf Day. Most of the videos throughout the Ark are open-captioned. ASL interpretation may be available for your visit with one month’s advance notice.
If you have any questions about Deaf Day, please contact us.
