About Noah’s Ark


"Extraordinary … A celebration of play, inspiring fascination, reviving wonder."
The New York Times

Aboard Noah’s Ark at the Skirball™, the award-winning children's and family destination that's the talk of the town, visitors of all generations play, climb, build, explore, make believe, and make friends—all while exploring a floor-to-ceiling wooden ark, filled to the rafters with whimsical animals. Share in a timeless story—and together envision a better world. 


The Ark is now open for virtual boarding! On select Sundays this May and June, join us for livestream Story Time programs. Representing folklore from around the world, Noah’s Ark educators will present different flood stories throughout the series.

Bring the magic of Noah’s Ark into your homes and classrooms! With Noah’s Ark at the Skirball: The Art of Imagination, explore vibrant new digital content, including six videos—now streaming on YouTube for all to enjoy—in which some of your favorite Noah’s Ark educators retell age-old flood stories and guide children through mindfulness exercises. While watching, your class or family can revisit the one-of-a-kind artistry of the Noah’s Ark galleries.

Special for Members! Join us for Noah’s Outdoor Explorers, a new Noah’s Ark adventure out in the fresh air. Together with Noah’s Ark animals and educators, let’s roam, reconnect, and explore.
