Description

Ark Encounter features a full-size Noah’s Ark, built according to the dimensions given in the Bible. Spanning 510 feet long, 85 feet wide, and 51 feet high, this modern engineering marvel amazes visitors young and old.

Ark Encounter is situated in the beautiful Williamstown, Kentucky, halfway between Cincinnati and Lexington on I-75. From the moment you turn the corner and the towering Ark comes into view, to the friendly animals in the zoo, to the jaw-dropping exhibits inside the Ark, you’ll experience the pages of the Bible like never before.

A MASSIVE STRUCTURE

This marvel of engineering is seven stories tall and is a football field and a half long. It is the largest timber-frame structure in the world, full of world-class exhibits designed to answer your questions about the biblical account of Noah’s Ark.

NOAH'S ARK ANIMALS

The Bible describes Noah’s Ark as a safe haven during the Flood for all kinds of air-breathing land animals and flying creatures God created. Naturally, people have many questions about the animals on Noah’s Ark. How could Noah fit all of them on board and care for so many animals? Explore real-life solutions and get answers at Ark Encounter!
