When you visit the Ark Encounter, located 45 minutes south of the museum, you’ll get answers to questions about the global flood, Noah, the animals on the ark, and more! Be sure to visit the Ararat Ridge Zoo, located behind the life-size Noah’s ark, grab a bite to eat at Emzara’s Buffet, and take in a free presentation in our brand-new Answers Center.
