I received this story as an email this morning and thought it was the neatest idea. Simply amazing details!! Just had to share it with everyone!
I'd love to be able to go see it in person! The boys would really enjoy it too.

Working Replica of Noah's Ark Opened In SCHAGEN Netherlands. The massive central door in the side of Noah's Ark was opened to the first crowd of curious 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.

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.

The ark is 150 cubits long, 30cubits high and 20 cubits wide.That's two-thirds the length of a football field and as high as a three-story house. Life-size models of giraffes,elephants, lions, crocodiles, zebras, bison and other animals greet visitors as they arrive in the main hold.
On the uncovered top deck - not quite ready in time for the opening - will come a petting zoo, with baby lambs, chickens, goats, and one camel.

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.
