Man Builds Noah's Ark
(exact scale given in Bible)
Working Replica of Noah's Ark Opened In SCHAGEN, Netherlands.
The ark is 150 cubits long, 30 cubits high and 20 cubits wide. That's two-thirds the length of a football field and as high as a three-story house. Life-size models of giraffes, elephants, lions, crocodiles, zebras, bison and other animals greet visitors as they arrive in the main hold. A contractor by trade, Huibers built the ark of cedar and pine.
Construction began in May 2005.
There is enough space near the keel for a 50-seat film theater where kids can watch a video that tells the story of Noah and his ark.
