About the Program

Noah’s Ark at the Skirball™ is open for virtual boarding! On select Sundays, join us for interactive livestream Story Time programs. Representing folklore from around the world, Noah’s Ark educators will present different flood stories throughout the series. Enjoy individual sessions or sign up for all four!

Together, we'll travel through storms, create safe shelters, and celebrate new beginnings—sometimes traveling in a large boat, and other times in a huge walnut shell or hollowed-out pumpkin. Through participatory elements like call-and-response, dancing, and drawing, let your little ones’ imaginations run wild as they become part of the story.
