Noah’s Ark in Stavanger

At port in Stavanger at the moment is a replica of Noah’s ark. Or what they imagine they would have looked like. Except from the barges they use to stabilize it.

Inside there is a museum that aims to show what you can find in the bible. I did not go inside as the price to go in was a bit high and the target group for this floating museum is kids. But it was interesting to have a look at it from the outside.

  1. Interesting. Is this a moving museum? Does it actually sail to other locations?

  2. What a fascinating idea to try to bring history to life. Sounds like fun.

  3. Its good to know that if Stavanger gets flooded you and the other inhabitants can take refuge in the ark! Seriously, its an interesting concept. Kevin

  4. If it is expensive how do the childre afford it?

      It’s cheaper for the children. And for the grandparents. And it’s not extremely expensive, but more than I was willing to pay to see a museum for children.
