  • We arrived early and the crowds were not too bad, but they got worse as the day progressed. Lots of kids. It was a fascinating experience, no matter what your beliefs. We were there from 9-3...

  • Absolutely amazing experience. Having the "back story" of Noah's ark from growing up was a big help, but I learned so much more than I ever expected! The place was very clean and nothing seemed worn.....  more

  • We loved it! So much to do. A nice zoo. The ark itself is incredible but there's all kind of extra activities. Entry, Gift shop, food, extra activities are not for a light budget. Also third floor of boat and a few exhibits were very personal belief system of Christianity. That guy's got his own views and makes sure you get a heavy portion of it but otherwise beautiful and Astounding step back in time. Be careful of the big buffet place. They seated us and took or money but we're already picking up food. And what was out was stale and cold. Despite my negatives it's a wonderful experience that the kids loved. If you got tax free church dollars to build this though, I suggest you make it more affordable. I feel like lots of families might miss out on this because of the price tag.
  • We loved the Arch experience. It was beautiful. It really gives you a different perspective of Noah's faith. Every believer should make this trip at least once in their life. You learn a lot and appreciate the experiences these men had with God. Can you imagine being faithful until the end to build this? How far will your faith go?
