Thousands of people come each year from around the world to learn about the founding of a movement of people who continue to look in hope for Jesus to return.” – Thomas R.

Noah's Ark/Ark Encounter

You’ve probably seen pictures of Noah’s Ark in children’s books, complete with giraffe heads sticking out the top. But the real Noah’s Ark, the one described in the Bible, was huge. It was amazingly seaworthy—a ship that kept the occupants safe during a year-long worldwide flood. Prepare to be blown away as you explore the life-sized reconstruction of Noah’s Ark. Built according to the dimensions given in the Bible, Ark Encounter is a jaw-dropping structure you’ll want to bring your whole family to see. Visit the Ark Encounter website for more information.
