faith-friendly attractions

As a home for many religious events, NKY has some very unique attractions that will have you singing our praises.

Complete with life-like animals, historical exhibits and lots of family-friendly fun, the one-of-a-kind Ark Encounter is the newest addition to Northern Kentucky's endless array of attractions.  The first-ever, full-scale replica of Noah's Ark is on a beautiful 300-acre pastoral Kentucky setting and is the largest timber-frame structure in America.  Come see for yourself how truly remARKable it is!

The Creation Museum, featuring exhibits designed by a former Universal Studios creative director, presents a "walk through history" in a state-of-the-art 75,000 square-foot museum that brings the pages of the Bible to life. Included in admission are the museum’s Walk Through History, Special Effects Theater, botanical gardens, petting zoo and more. Other features like the Stargazer’s Planetarium and the exhilarating Screaming Raptor Zip Lines can be added for an additional charge.  Walk through the Garden of Eden. See the scaffolding and smell the freshly-cut timbers in the work site of Noah’s Ark. Dig up dinosaur bones—or come face to face with T-Rex.

And do not miss St. Mary's Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption. This historic structure was elevated to the rank of a minor basilica by Pope Pius XII in 1953 - and is an architectural marvel to behold. Can you count all the gargoyles?

NKY has so many inspired attractions to offer—contact Susan to learn more!
