The site of this massive project is Williamstown, Kentucky, and it's been six years in the making.

The folks behind it, a Christian ministry called Answers in Genesis, brought in Ark historians to help with detail.

The Ark is 510 feet long, based on the dimensions recorded in the Bible and its 5 stories high.

Inside there are animal cages with life-like creatures. The Ark even features fake dinosaurs, which the creators of the attraction believe existed 6,000 years ago. Scientists believe dinosaurs were extinct 65 million years before this period of time.

It displays Noah’s family and the creator of the massive ship as well.
