Noah’s Ark at The Skirball --A fun and Creative Place for Children

The Skirball Cultural Center has an amazing permanent award-winning site for children (and everyone else!) – their very creative imagining of Noah’s Ark.


I recently visited for the first time and it won’t be the last!

I had spent some time 18 months ago thinking about, researching and painting my ark illustration for Signed, Abiah Rose.
I wish I had visited the Skirball ark first. It would have put me in the right frame of mind for my endeavor!

There’s a lot to look at aboard their gigantic wooden ark, especially the wonderful hand-crafted animals.

There are also hands-on things to do, storms to ‘conduct’ and rafters to climb as you involve yourself in the whole experience of this fanciful and whimsical world.
