기독교단체  ‘창세기의 응답(Answers in Genesis)’이 켄터키 주 윌리엄스타운에 대규모 테마파크 ‘아크 인카운터( Ark Encounter)’ 에 ‘노아의 방주’ 코너를 7일 개장한다.

2010년부터 1억 달러를 투입하여 완성한 이 모형 방주는 길이 155.4m, 폭 25.9m, 높이 15.5m 규모다. ‘창세기의 응답’  CEO 켄 햄은 “이 사업은 우리 역사상 최대의 위대한 기독교 사업이 될 것”이라며 여기세워진 거대한 노아의 방주가 말세에 큰 홍수로 인류와 지구상의 모든 동물이 멸종할 것에 대비하도록 한 하나님의 뜻을 표현한 것이라고 프리뷰 행사에서 밝혔다.

방주는 성경에 기록된 그대로의 모습을 재현하는데 주력했고 내부에는 노아의 가족과 동물들의 우리가 그대로 재현되어 있다.

일일 관람료는 성인 기준 40달러며 방주 측은 개장 첫해 방문객 200만 명을 예상하고 있다.
