Johan's Ark is a Noah's Ark-themed barge in Dordrecht, Netherlands, which was built by the Dutch building contractor, carpenter and creationist Johan Huibers. It is a full-scale interpretation of the biblical Ark, featuring animal models, including cows, penguins, a crocodile, and a giraffe. It opened to the public in 2012.
In 1976 the then pastor of "God's Ark of Security" (a non-denominational Christian ministry in Frostburg, Maryland) began building a replica of Noah's Ark on a hill along what is now Interstate 68. A foundation of over 3,000 tons of concrete was biblical built, approximately 450 x 75 x 45 feet tall. The first steel parts were installed. But the construction was never completed, because even then the construction costs were estimated at over 50,000,000 US $ and the costs could not be raised only through donations.
