Late last year, we began building a 2,500-seat auditorium and multipurpose facility at the Ark Encounter. The Answers Center will allow us to easily host conferences, concerts, daily speaking events, and family workshops near our life-size Noah’s ark.
We have also been able to move along with plans to include a 10,000-square-foot lobby at the front of the auditorium. This will contain a bookstore where we can offer even more resources to people attending our presentations at the Ark Encounter. In addition to the lobby and the auditorium, the Answers Center will also include a basement that has 36,000 square feet for workshop rooms.
The Answers Center will enable us to do so much more at the ark and reach even more people with the message of biblical authority and the gospel!
Great weather this spring has allowed construction on the Answers Center to move ahead quickly. Check out these 11 photos to see how far the new building has come since we started building in the fall.
We can’t wait to open this new addition for our guests later this year! Start planning your trip to the Ark Encounter today, and share your favorite photos from your visit on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter using #arkencounter.
