A One-Of-A-Kind Historical Attraction
From the moment the towering Ark comes into view, you’ll be amazed and engaged by this one-of-a-kind experience!
The Ark Encounter features a life-size Noah’s Ark, built according to the dimensions given in the Bible’s Book of Genesis. At 510 feet long, 85 feet wide, and 51 feet high, the Ark is the largest timber frame structure in the world, built in part by skilled Amish craftsmen, and this modern engineering marvel constantly amazes visitors young and old.
In addition to the Ark itself and its three decks of world-class exhibits, Ark Encounter includes an animal zoo with daily live mammal shows, an interactive children’s area, live entertainment, and a large themed restaurant that help you experience the pages of the Bible like never before.
“An undeniable spectacle, and it must be seen to be believed.”
During your trip you will learn about Noah’s life, how Noah might have cared for all the animals, and how the Ark was big enough to fit them all on board. You will also learn about what the legends from around the world tell us about Noah’s flood, and what happened to Noah, the animals, and the Earth after the flood.
You’ll be entertained, educated, and immersed in a number of biblical themes. Situated in beautiful Grant County in Williamstown, Kentucky, halfway between Cincinnati and Lexington, Ark Encounter is designed to be family friendly, historically authentic, and environmentally friendly.
Each trip is unique, but can include:
– Transportation To And From The Ark
