Last week, our family visited Los Angeles for a quick getaway.  Through a recommendation of a friend, we visited the Noah’s Ark exhibit at the Skirball Center.  We had a fantastic time there!

I had never heard of the Skirball, even though it’s just up the street from the Getty Center (which we’ve visited many times).  I’m so glad that we took one afternoon out to visit.

The Noah’s Ark exhibit is an immersive, interactive experience filled with creativity.  After entering the museum and finding our way to the Noah’s Ark exhibit, we waited for a couple of minutes for a quick orientation.

There, we found out that the animals on display throughout the Ark are made from recycled materials.  For example, they fashioned flamingos from spools of thread, fly swatters and combs and alligators from tires and violin cases.

Kids are free to run around, explore hands-on, and create their own animals from recycled art materials.  We used almost our entire two-hour block in the exhibit.  If you have kids, or are a kid at heart, the Noah’s Ark exhibit is a great place to spend the afternoon.
