About the Program

Welcome back, Skirball Members! Return to the campus for an outdoor experience created specially for Member families with young children and inspired by the values and messages of Noah’s Ark at the Skirball™.

The Noah's Ark story reminds us to appreciate and care for the natural world and the people and creatures who call Earth home. In that spirit, our Noah’s Outdoor Explorers program invites you to an array of meaningful experiences out in the fresh air:

  • Spend two hours exploring the Skirball’s outdoor pathways, green spaces, and amphitheater.
  • Spark your senses with mindful seek-and-find activities.
  • Add your own wishes for the world to a communal work of art.
  • Enjoy a flood story told live by Noah’s Ark educators.
  • Be ready for a chance encounter with a Noah’s Ark puppet scurrying past or flying overhead!
  • Leave feeling newly inspired to take care of the earth and each other.

Upon arrival, each Member child will receive a complimentary “Explorer Kit” to use during your visit and take home with you.

Please note: Noah’s Outdoor Explorers is a fully masked, physically distanced, self-guided experience with limited visitor capacity in support of efforts to minimize the spread of COVID-19. The Skirball Museum and Noah’s Ark galleries—as well as Audrey’s Museum Store, Zeidler’s Café, Archaeology Dig, and Family Art Studio—remain closed.

Be sure to read our Noah’s Outdoor Explorers: Ticketing Guidelines and Safety Protocols carefully before making your reservation and arriving at the Skirball.

Noah’s Outdoor Explorers is currently offered to Skirball Members only. If you are not a Member, check back for possible expansion of the program!
