Noah Ark Replica at Ipswich Waterfront! 

Noahs ArkA huge replica of the Ark has been docked at the Ipswich Waterfront, with plans to stay for up to three months. The Ark is a museum in disguise, boasting an impressive four floors of exhibits, complete with a shop and café. Spanning all floors is a huge replica of the tree of life, found in the middle of the ship amidst the displays and sculptures. The exhibits showcase various biblical stories by using intricately carved wooden sculptures and interactive displays, and are sure to garner attention from even the youngest of inquisitive minds! Of course, there is enough detail and charm to suit older audiences too. 

As the world’s only sea-borne museum, the Ark offers a uniquely entertaining experience to anyone wishing to look at Biblical stories from a different perspective, and is a great way to engage children with the Bible.

Pupils from St Margaret’s Church Of England Voluntary Aided Primary School in Ipswich will be attending a service on the Ark next week (week commencing 27th November) which is due to be filmed by the BBC for a Christmas episode of Songs of Praise!

The ark is open seven days a week, for more information please click here.
