Noah's Ark Replica - De Ark Van Noach

By Ladyexpat

I love the Netherlands.  On our way to Rotterdam, we stopped in Dordrecht, Netherlands, to see the almost completed Noah's Ark replica, known as de Ark van Noach in Dutch. We were hoping that it would be open but it is not quite finished yet.  It is planned to be completed in mid-July.  Since we were in the area, we decided to drive by it and take some pictures.
The owner, Johan Huibers, has spent the past few years building an ark that is identical to the ark Noah built in the book of Genesis.  Mr. Huibers is going to fill the ark with life-size animals.  From outside the fence, we could see an elephant and a giraffe.
Once it's finished Mr. Huibers hopes to sail the ark to various places around the world.  He hopes to use the ark as a teaching tool to share the Bible.  I look forward to going back and touring the ark in Dordrecht, Netherlands, once it is completed.  I think people both young and old would enjoy it.  You can read more about the ark athttp://www.arkvannoach.com/cms/en and https://www.facebook.com/pages/Noahs-Ark/174828982177?sk=info
