Noah's Ark Launched!

Modern day Noah?

We think this is pretty incredible! Over the past 20 years, Dutchman, Johan Huibers painstakingly built a life-sized replica of Noah's Ark. And when we say, "painstakingly," we mean down to every last dimensional detail as set forth in the Bible.
Translating to modern measurements, Huibers came up with a vessel that works out to a whopping 427 feet (130 meters) long, 95 feet (29 meters) across and 75 feet (23 meters) high.
The massive masterpiece, which has a restaurant and movie theater on the top level and an actual petting zoo, is now open to the public and moored just south of Rotterdam in the Netherlands. To read all about Johan's motivation, determination and what he has planned next, click here!

Well done, Johan!
