Join us and visit one of the most interesting, new attractions in the U.S.! The new Ark Encounter is a one-of-a-kind, historically-themed attraction. In an entertaining, educational and immersive way, it presents a number of historical events centered on Noah's Ark as recorded in the Bible. As the largest timber-framed structure in the country, the 510-foot-long full-size Ark is designed to be historically authentic. The Ark Encounter, as a sister attraction of the popular Creation Museum, is a Christian evangelistic outreach intended to bring the Ark of Noah's day and the events recorded in the book of Genesis, to life.
