About Noah's Ark

Visit us aboard Noah’s Ark at the Skirball! This award-winning children's and family destination invites visitors of all generations to play, climb, build, make-believe, and make friends—all while exploring an eight-thousand-square-foot wooden ark filled to the rafters with whimsical animals. Share in a timeless story—and together envision a better world.

Imagine yourself immersed in a favorite childhood tale, which has parallels in cultures all over the world. Conduct a storm, help construct the Ark, and bask in the glow of a beautiful rainbow. Mingle with hundreds of fancifully handcrafted animals—from cuddly companions to life-sized puppets—all crafted from recycled materials and everyday objects, including baseball mitts, mop heads, and rearview mirrors.
