Noah's Ark

Noah's Ark is the world's only floating exhibition of Bible storytelling and has extended its stay at Ipswich Waterfront until March 2021!

A world class, family-friendly, unique attraction, a floating museum of storytelling that spans 2,000 square metres! 

Currently in Ipswich on its first tour of the UK, Noah's Ark is a half-sized replica of Noah's original boat and an educational and cultural celebration of many of the Bible's legendary stories. From Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, Noah, Abraham, Moses, to David and Goliath, this quirky, creative, and extraordinary space brings to life the biblical stories through an array of uniquely beautiful wooden carved sculpture stories and tableaux. No matter what you believe, the Ark creates a talking point for visitors to reflect on and discuss their own experiences.

Dutch theatre and TV producer Aad Peters brought the huge wooden ship to the UK. He has toured it across Europe since its launch in 2010, sailing into 56 harbours and welcoming more than half a million visitors. Dozens of master craftspeople enabled Aad to fulfil his creative vision and make it a unique visitor attraction, at the centre of which is the Tree of Life, growing 12 metres up through all 4 floors of the Ark. 

There is even a 120 seat Theatre on the Ark, which is available to group visitors and for private events!

The Ark recently appeared on ITV, BBC Songs of Praise and BBC Look East and will appear on the global Discovery Channel in the summer of 2020. 

Aad's reasons for creating the Ark were simple; "If you know your own stories, it is easier to understand the culture of others." 

Private event or group booking representatives are invited to get in touch with the Ark team to plan their visits. Telephone 07415 544662 or email info@arkmuseum.eu

The Ark is wheelchair accessible (including toilets) via main entrance ramp, with interior lift to all floors.
