Standing at seven stories high and 510-feet long, the Ark Encounter is one of the largest timber framed structures in the world. This massive structure is packed full of adventure for the whole family. 

When you’ve made your way through the Ark Encounter, soar through the air on zip lines, let the kids run through the playground, then visit animals from around the world at the Ararat Ridge Zoo. The Ark Encounter is a fully immersive experience for the entire family to enjoy. Make sure to enjoy a meal at Emzara's Kitchen, one of the largest restaurants in the world. Make sure to save time for a visit in August during the Ark Encounter's 40 Days and 40 Nights of Muisc. 

After wrapping up a day at the Ark Encounter, head over to its sister attraction, the Creation Museum. The 75,000 square-foot facility is home to state-of-the-art exhibits, a unique look at insect history and a new conservatory coming soon.  

Explore beautiful botanical gardens, a zip line adventure course, planetarium and so much more. It’s a sure thing you won’t run out of things to do on your trip to the Ark Encounter and Creation Museum in Northern Kentucky.
