  • What you need to know up front: First, plan to spend the whole day doing this. Do not try to do the Creation Museum and this in the same day. You will have to shortchange both in order to do them both...  more »

  • An extraordinary and beautiful experience to see how God instructed Noah to build the ark. The Ark Encounter transports you back in time and it feels like your are living at the time of the flood. Everything is well explained and illustrated. I highly recommend going
  • We had an awesome experience and great for the family. Lots of walking. Ramps, no stairs and well organized. Parking is good, unless you HAVE to be next to the entrance. I recommend that you give yourself an early start if you wanna see everything. Best if you can visit two days. You can stay in Cincinnati, make the drive down and arrive with time to do and see a lot. Prices are reasonable. Staff is exceptional. Great experience.
  • Overall great experience. The staff here was amazing. The experience was incredible. Being inside the Ark felt incredible. I hope to see more encounters of the Bible coming to life in the future. The Ark was breathtaking inside and out. The grounds were clean and well thought out. The gift shop was pretty neat. I wish they had actual mini wooden Arks for sale. Would be cool to have that in my office.
  • Amazing! Amazing! Amazing! This is an Amazing experience! Very well constructed and designed with extreme attention given to details and information. Challenges your preconceived ideas with factual educational exhibits of life-like proportions. Could go daily and not be bored. It reminds the heart and mind to be grateful to our Lord Jesus Christ for His eternal salvation and promises! I commend and thank ALL who took part in this epic project on a job WELL DONE!!
  • A very detailed illustration of Noah’s arc, it’s beautifully made and very informative. We visited during the Labor Day weekend where we expected it to be pretty crowded, the arc is so huge that the crowd didn’t bother us. We were there for almost 6 hrs,But still skipped a few spots. There is a lot to read and learn, a fun place for parents to teach their kids about the story in the Bible. The small zoo there is a cherry on the icing, loved the kangaroos there. They were a treat to watch.
