Exhibits

Travel back in time on a mile-long scenic bus ride and be amazed when the massive Ark comes into view. Our life-size Noah's Ark is three exhibits in one—the massive structure itself, the incredible craftsmanship, and the beautifully fabricated teaching exhibits. The combination of all three will inspire you to think differently about the biblical account of Noah’s Ark.
