Explore the Ark Encounter

Williamstown, Kentucky


Added by John Clairmont

Spend a day exploring this massive, three-decked ship created to tell the biblical narrative of Noah's ark.

This built-to-scale ark is absolutely flooded with information and interactive exhibits for all ages. It was an awesome experience walking through and learning about the culture and technology of the time period, both pre-and post-flood. You can learn things such as how the ark was built, what features it had to keep occupants safe and dry, how the animals fit, what cultures around the world have legends of huge floods, and much more. There is also a petting zoo and a restaurant on-site! If you're looking for a bit of exhilaration midday, you can sign up for a zipline course as well.
