New Ark Exhibit Opened at Creation Museum

by on

The Creation Museum opened a new Ark exhibit this past Friday. This is a large outside display—a very intriguing one.

The talented designers for the Ark Encounter project (involving building a life-size replica of Noah’s Ark out of wood), designed one Ark bay (one of 132 such bays to go in the future Ark) to illustrate how much room there is inside, as well as a teaching exhibit about the size of the Ark.

This Ark bay has been built just outside the portico area of the Creation Museum and is facing the lake. See the following photos:

To give you a perspective of the Ark’s size, Creation Museum Foto FX photographer Deb Minnard created the image below that shows the Ark superimposed on the Creation Museum and AiG offices. Look to the left and you will see the Ark bay. This helps you get an idea of the size of the Ark and how this bay fits into the Ark.

We also have another exciting exhibit being opened on Thursday—a unique Bible Museum exhibit! I will tell you more about that later this week.

Make sure you visit the Creation Museum soon. Go to for details.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
