B and I ventured out to board Noah’s Ark at the Skirball Center this week and if you haven’t been you need to check it out! Admission is $12 per adult, toddlers under 2 are free and you can reserve tickets online HERE!
In true B “explorer” fashion we used the 90 minute time slot to run from room to room with wild abandon shrieking at the top of our lungs. For older tots, or those with longer attention spans, you can control the rain, thunder, lighting and animals boarding the ark. There are puppets and animals galore for the kids to play with, they can even use scoops to pick up the animal poo. They literally thought of everything Noah would have needed!
There is a top deck on the Ark which needs parental supervision for tots under 4. You heard it here first… beware! My knees are still recovering! You will be forced to crawl chase your toddler through tight corridors with lots of little spaces for their baby feet to fall through. Not to mention getting stuck when a child is too scared to climb back down. We will be planted firmly on the first floor deck for the next 2.5 years!
Last but certainly not least, if you want to enjoy lunch at Zeidler’s Cafe make a reservation! We planned on having lunch only to arrive to a full cafe left to punt with the snack cart outside which was lackluster at best and not very kid friendly. The PB&J I bought B ended up untouched on the table and he survived on string cheese and snacks from his backpack.
