A few weeks ago I was invited to visit the Skirball Cultural Central with my friend Shiri and our families to see the Noah’s Ark exhibit — an interactive experience for both children and adults. This permanent fixture unique to the Skirball has all that you’ll need to keep your little ones entertained, beginning with story time and ending in a number of rooms filled with simple machines, places to climb, and noises to create.
Keep in mind, the exhibit opened in 2007 and is still in high demand. Tickets are included with museum admission, however, you’ll want to book in advance since they are timed and subject to availability.
We also dipped in a bit early to check out the rest of this incredible museum, plus a pit stop at the Paul Simon exhibit currently on until Sept. 3, 2017. Fox was asleep when we first arrived so we took our time filling our minds with new and important information. Several exhibits proved to be timely with our current environment in the United States, including Visions and Values and Future Aleppo.
When the babe woke up, we tried our hand at becoming a family band (likely not in the cards, haha) and Fox put on his imaginary archaeologist lab coat as he dug in the sand for artifacts. It was plenty hot outside, but the tented areas complete with misters made it enjoyable.
By the way, there’s plenty to eat while you’re visiting the 8,000-foot gallery so plan to spend the day there. You may need a few to cover all ground.
A huge thank you to the Skirball Cultural Center for having us out for a fun day with friends! We learned so much and made some beautiful memories.
