Netherlands Noah's Ark
Interior view of the full scale replica of Noah’s Ark with life-size replica's of animals which has opened its doors in Dordrecht, Netherlands, Monday Dec. 10, 2012, after receiving permission to receive up to 3,000 visitors per day. Interpreting the description given in Genesis, Johan’s incredibly detailed interpretation measures in at a massive 130 meters (427 feet) long, 29 meters (95 feet) across and 23 meters (75 feet) high. For those who don’t know or remember the Biblical story, God ordered Noah to build a boat massive enough to save animals and humanity while God destroyed the rest of the earth in an enormous flood.
