Noah’s Ark experience– Imagine yourself immersed in a favorite childhood tale. Occupying an 8,000-square-foot gallery, Noah’s Ark at the Skirball™ welcomes children and families to take this journey together.
Archaeology Dig and Discovery Center – The outdoor archaeology dig and research tent as well as the indoor archaeology Discovery Center—which holds original artifacts from the ancient Near East—give families the opportunity to journey together into the past and discover what they have in common with people who lived centuries ago. Roll up your sleeves, don an archaeologist’s vest, and sift and sort through the remains of an Iron Age city buried beneath the sand to discover fascinating clues about life in the ancient world.
Family Art Studio – The Skirball’s drop-in Family Art Studio offers an ever-changing menu of creative projects for families to work on together. Facilitated by local artists, these projects often incorporate recycled and repurposed materials—from cloth and canisters to widgets and wire—and focus on exploring the ways creativity and caring for our world can converge through art.
