The Noah's Ark replica

This Noah's Ark replica was built in Schagen, Netherland. It was built by Dutch contractor Johan Huibers, to show the world how massive the Ark was and how so many animals could have been housed for a long time.

The ark was built approximately to scale, however is 1/2 the length and 1/3 the width of the Biblical dimensions. This Ark is built on a barge that can be moved with a tug boat.

Life-size models of giraffes, elephants, lions, crocodiles, zebras, bison and other animals were kept inside the ark. There is also a 50-seat film theater where kids can watch a video that tells the story of Noah and his ark.
