Want To See Noahs Ark Just Head To Holland

08.02.12 | Sarah Harnisch

A life-size replica of Noah's Ark opened to the public this week in Holland. Dutch millionaire Johan Huibers used the ancient measurement of the cubit, the length of a man's arm from the elbow to the fingertips, to build it. It's just over 450 feet long, and took a team of 5 people four years to finish, with modern equipment. He has filled it with a plastic menagerie of animals, as well as a few species of live birds, to recreate the story of noah for paying visitors and to make the bible more "touchable."
