Full-Scale Noah’s Ark

Life Sized Ark Thumb

A full-scale Noah’s Ark replica can be found in the Netherlands.

Built by Johan Huibers, a Christian, this vessel works out to around 130 metres long, 29 metres across and 23 metres high. He used books 6-9 of Genesis as his inspiration, following the instructions God gave Noah.

Take a look at Huibers work in this video below:

The ark has life-sized animal displays aboard, according to the attraction’s website, and some live animals, including parakeets, parrots, pheasants, peacocks and rabbits. But the tigers giraffe, bison and elephant are just sculptures.

The ship holds information on the Biblical story, houses two cinemas for special events, and boasts a restaurant so patrons can enjoy the view of the Merwede River.

A pretty impressive venture wouldn’t you say?
