Working Replica of Noah’s Ark opens In SCHAGEN, Netherlands

The massive central door in the side of Noah’s Ark was thrown open Saturday for the first crowd of curious Pilgrims and townsfolk to behold the wonder.

Of course, it’s only a replica of the biblical Ark , built by Dutch
Creationist Johan Huibers as a testament to his faith in the literal truth of the Bible.

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. Noah’s Ark as described in the Bible was five times larger than Johan’s Ark.

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 –
Biblical Scholars debate exactly what the wood used by Noah would have been

Huibers did the work mostly with his own hands, using modern tools
and with occasional help from his son Roy. Construction began in
May 2005.

On the uncovered top deck – not quite ready in time for the opening
– will come a petting zoo, with baby lambs and chickens, and goats,
and one camel.

Visitors on the first day were stunned.

‘It’s past comprehension, ‘ said Mary Louise Starosciak, who
happened to be bicycling by with her husband while on vacation
when they saw The ark looming over the local landscape.

‘I knew the story of Noah, but I had no idea the boat would have been so big.’

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.

Huibers said he hopes the project will renew interest in Christianity in
the Netherlands, where churchgoing has fallen dramatically in the past 50 years.

”If You Need Help, Ask God. If You Don’t, Thank God”….

  1. Hey Girl! Thanks…I was so Blessed. The Celebration was phenomenal! We sang songs of praise and Victory! We praised God for 4 hours and fellowshipped for a while afterwards! There’s nothing better than being with the saints and honoring the life of a fellow saint with all on one accord. It truly was a case of receiving a baton to run this race with a vision of God’s plan. It was a great refreshing! Thanks for asking friend…as you can tell…I could go on and on..smile. Love E
