|We are excited to combine a visit to the Ark Encounter with 40 days and 40 nights of Gospel Music and the Creation Museum … into one great trip. This is the World’s Largest Christian Music Festival and you will enjoy one headliner concert along with multiple other musical offerings at the Ark Encounter plus a morning concert at the Creation Museum. This tour is designed on weekdays to enhance our time at both attractions with smaller crowds verses days that include or lead up to the weekend. |
FEATURES: Ark Encounter - A full-size Noah’s Ark, built according to the dimensions given in the Bible. Spanning 510 feet long, 85 feet wide, and 51 feet high, this modern engineering marvel amazes visitors young and old. This life-size Noah’s Ark was built by the creators of the Creation Museum. The Ark Encounter is three exhibits in one - the massive Ark structure itself, the incredible craftsmanship, and the beautifully fabricated teaching exhibits. Looking up at the massive structure and incredible workmanship of the hull is only the beginning of your encounter with the Ark. Their commitment to historical accuracy and artistic excellence continues inside on three decks full of beautifully crafted teaching exhibits that will inspire you to think differently about the biblical account of Noah’s Ark. Noah’s Family: Be transported back in time to meet Noah and his seven other family members, who lived aboard the Ark and cared for all the animals during the Flood. See what their living quarters may have looked like, what they could have brought on board, and even what kinds of clothing they wore. Living Quarters: Find out how Noah and his family might have lived on the Ark, from cooking food to sleeping, recreation, and even gardening! Animals on Board: Many of the animals that lived during Noah’s lifetime didn’t look much like the animals we see today. Prepare to have your expectations challenged by a host of incredibly lifelike sculpted animals, along with exotic live animals from around the world in Ararat Ridge Zoo. Plus, you’ll learn how Noah could have cared for all the animals and how the Ark was big enough to fit them all on board. • 40 days and 40 nights of Gospel Music - A great lineup of national artists and speakers that will be performing. Line-up announced closer to tour departure. • Creation Museum - Where the history of the Bible vividly comes to life with over 140 state-of-the-art exhibits.
