About the Program

Members, welcome back to Noah’s Ark at the Skirball! Return with a renewed sense of what it means to journey through a stormy time with resilience and hope. Come say hello to your favorite educators and animal friends, care for baby animals in the nursery, and marvel at the new storm clouds that will illuminate your journey and spark your senses! Play, climb, build, explore, and leave with a greater appreciation of the importance of community and caring for the world.

Explore outdoors! After your hour aboard the Ark, experience surprise interactions and drop-in activities in the fresh air. Meet a puppet or two, hear a story in the amphitheater, or create a take-home art project.

Visit the Archaeology Dig during weekend dates! On August 28 and 29, and September 4 and 5, sift and sort to find replicas of ancient artifacts buried beneath the sand and discover what we have in common with people who lived three thousand years ago.

Let’s Stay Safe 

When you return to Noah’s Ark, you’ll notice fewer visitors in the galleries, bins to place toys after use, plenty of sanitizing wipes, and closures between daily sessions for cleaning. An upgraded air filtration system has also been installed for everyone’s safety.
