NileGuide Expert tip:
Check the current themes and schedule on the Ark's very helpful website and book well ahead.
Every year, more than 20,000 children visit this unique cultural center where they are the makers, thinkers, doers, listeners, and watchers. Age-specific programs are geared to small groups of kids from 4 to 14 years old. There are organized minicourses (1-2 hr. long) designed around themes in music, visual arts, and theater, as well as workshops in photography, instrument making, and the art of architecture. The custom-designed arts center has three modern floors that house a theater, a gallery, and a workshop for hands-on learning sessions. Weekdays are often booked for school groups, but Saturday (and sometimes Sun) is kept open for families.
