The Ark Encounter is located in Williamstown, Kentucky. This magnificent structure is a full-size Noah’s Ark! The dimensions for the Ark were taken from the Book of Genesis in the Bible. The measurements were converted into today’s measurements which make the Ark 510 feet long, 51 feet high, and 85 feet wide. Inside there is a ground level and three decks. You are transported back in time to see how Noah and his family lived on the Ark and cared for all the animals during the Flood. Each deck provides a glimpse of how the animals may have been caged, water and food storage, living and work quarters. There are many exhibits that answer many questions on such topics like the Ice Age, Flood Geology and Ancient Man. The grounds also have some exciting things for kids of all ages from camel rides to animal encounters! Unfortunately, we had to shorten our stay here due to our RV repairs and would have liked to go to the Creation Museum about 45 minutes away, but that gives another reason to visit Kentucky again!
This has been a great place to end our final eastward stopping point for our blog. We hope you have enjoyed following our adventures on our blog. May it serve as guidance for your trip planning, as eyes of places you have never seen, memories of your own trips or simply to bring a smile. God has richly blessed us with people we have met along the way, the country we live in, and the beauty that his hand created for our enjoyment and responsibility. The next few months we will be enjoying visits with family, friends, and then returning to Florida for the winter. Thank you for following along with us as we revealed the adventures of RV living!
Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Psalm 119:105
