Noah’s Ark in the Netherlands

noahsark.jpgDutchman Johan Huibers has build a replica of Noah’s Ark. Even though it’s only a fifth of the original size (as described in the Bible) it still is 70m long, 10m wide and 13m high.

It cost about 1 Million Euros, but he plans on getting the money back by charging people to tour the ship. You can see life size plastic animals (someday maybe real animals) and get educated about the Bible.

The ship will be open to public starting tomorrow, in Schagen (north of Amsterdam). There are plans to set sail and go on tour to Belgium and Germany later.
