The 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. The Ark Encounter is situated in beautiful Grant County in Williamstown, Kentucky.

As you enter Noah’s world aboard the massive Ark, you’ll tour three decks filled with scores of world-class exhibit bays. These stunning exhibits allow you to experience what Noah’s life may have been like.

Deck 1

Deck 1 immerses guests in the size and scope of the biblical ark as visitors walk through a storage area and learn about animal kinds.

Deck 2

Deck 2 focuses on the pre-flood world, animal concerns, and an exploration of Noah and how God could have prepared him for his monumental task.

Deck 3

Deck 3 covers plausible living quarters for Noah and his family, flood geology, post-flood events, and a special Museum of the Bible exhibit.

From unique dining to dynamic speaker presentations, concerts, hands-on activities, and more, the Ark Encounter is packed with experiences to make your visit fun, educational, and memorable.
