What to know before you visit
Are you looking for a way to enhance your trip to the Ark Encounter and dive deeper into its content? We’re excited to announce the release of a brand-new resource that will allow you to do just that—the Ark Encounter Educational Guides.
These guides, available for Grades K–2, 3–6, and 7–adult, will assist families, groups, and individuals visiting the Ark Encounter or our sister attraction, the Creation Museum, as you tour these world-class attractions. The educational guides will help you dive deeper into the content and be better equipped to think biblically and defend the truth of God’s Word.
Written by Dr. Jennifer Rivera, our education specialist, these guides are specifically designed for each age group, to help young children through adult really understand the Ark’s content and take it to heart. We want children and adults alike to learn as much as possible from their visit, so their thinking can be shaped according to God’s Word, and they can be equipped to boldly defend their faith. It’s a fun way to make your visit an educational experience!
In these guides, you’ll find pre-arrival activities to help engage your child or group in faith-strengthening discussion. The guide is separated into sections designed to model the flow of the Ark, so it’s easy to use as you walk through. And each section contains a note from our CEO, Ken Ham, as well as pictures, activities, puzzles or games, Scripture verses related to the exhibits, and amazing facts.
The included post-visit activities reinforce everything you learned and experienced during your visit for a wonderful discussion on the drive home and long afterward.
These guides are fantastic for anyone visiting the Ark Encounter or the Creation Museum, but they are also ideal for school and homeschool groups. Answer keys are also available for easy grading! We even offer bulk pricing to ensure all students can enjoy these excellent guides.
