With a total of 7,300 cubic meters of wood used for its construction, the gigantic project "Ark Encounter" is recognized as the largest self-supporting wooden structure in the world. The Amish, renowned for their craftsmanship in carpentry and cabinetmaking, have lent support to the ambitions of Ken Ham, one of the leaders of the creationist movement in the USA and the promoter of this project. For this the purpose of the ark is purely religious. It is a matter of spreading the Christian message through an exhibition on 3 levels exposing the creationist doctrine.

Ark Encounter wants to be
an amusement park to the glory of Creationism for the whole family but the site is especially frequented by the elderly. Everything is well
designed in the ark to facilitate access.
About thirty stuffed species have finally found their place in the arch. Some animatronics have a big part. Among them, we can discover dinosaurs including a couple of
Tyrannosaurus Rex. Nothing incongruous about this, according to the Australian Ken Ham, leader of creationism in the United States: God created the world in six days six
thousand years ago; since then, men and animals have undergone only very slight changes. So the dinosaurs rubbed shoulders with the savior Noah. And the arch-museum is
there to remind us of that
Throughout the journey of the visit on the 3 floors of the arch, good computer graphics designed to popularize the creationist doctrine.
They attempt "evidence" in support of deconstructing the Darwinian theory of evolution. A true brainwashing well tied and likely to convince the most influential minds
the various exhibition halls are accessible by wooden ramps made with great ingenuity by the Amish

The true story is learned here through dioramas, video shows and rather successful animations that expose the "scientific" veracity of the Old Testament ... Descartes and Galileo are presented there as rebels of human reason against omniscience Divine.
You wanted to know about Noah, how he managed to build the ark by himself. Nothing is left to chance and everything is explained in detail, diagrams, infographies and animations in support.

magnificent and very didactic cartoon animations explain how the incredible journey of the Ark was made possible by Noah's ingenuity and breathtaking engineering skills

A part of the second level of the ark is dedicated to children and with very simple illustrations and computer graphics. but there is also a children's bookstore called "Fairy Tale
Ark" offering books, coloring books, games, illustrated Bibles, that teach creationist theories in a very didactic and playful way

Nail of the visit. A mural and moral cartoon tells the story of a student experiencing existential doubts. Rather than turning to faith, it succumbs to boys, to alcohol and dark in the darkest decadence. The divine wrath does not wait very long ... It ends in a bath of blood and suffering.
At the end of the visit, you will pass through the must-see souvenir shop: key chains, mugs, models, t-shirts, caps, and many other ridiculous things bearing the effigy of the
ark.
And in the middle of all these trinkets, you see huge piles of books for babies, children and adults defending creationist theory
Religious schools and universities regularly visit the ark. On a scientific level this park is denounced as a dangerous absurdity. Several associations condemn disinformation similar to child maltreatment.
