A brand new Ark like the one currently under construction in Kentucky is not something that can be built overnight. Thousands of individuals across the country have donated their time and money to construct the full-size Ark and it is already well on its way to completion. It will come as no surprise to anyone, then, that the Ark Encounter project cost an estimated $92 million to complete.

The Ark Encounter is a new $100 million life-sized Noah’s ark based on the stories from the Bible. It opened its’ doors on July 7th 2016 and since then has attracted huge crowds, not only for its much anticipated Christian theme but for its massive structure and high-quality woodwork. But how much did it cost to build? And Where did the money come from?

The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) filed a federal lawsuit against park owner Ken Ham on behalf of four plaintiffs: two families who attended the park but were refused entry based on their lack of religious beliefs and two FFRF staff members who were refused membership to the park’s parent organization, Answers in Genesis (AIG).

According to FFRF, the suit alleges “violations of federal law prohibiting discrimination in public accommodations on the basis of religion or other personal characteristics.”

In a statement reported by CNN, AIG said it “remains steadfastly committed to defending God’s Word and His reputation from those who seek to destroy it.”

The Ark Encounter, a Noah’s Ark-themed amusement park built by the Ark Encounter LLC and operated by Answers in Genesis, opened on July 7, 2016. The park is located near Interstate 75 at Exit 40 in Grant County, Kentucky.

The Ark Encounter is a 510 foot long by 85 foot wide structure constructed as a replica of Noah’s Ark and intended to be an educational experience for visitors. The ark has three decks with a total gross volume of 1,400,000 cubic feet (41,667 m3). The first deck is dedicated to exhibits designed to show how Noah could have built the ark according to the biblical account in Genesis 6–9.

The second and third decks depict scenes from Genesis 7–8: the Flood and its aftermath. There are displays of animals in cages that include information about each animal’s diet and lifespan. Visitors can walk through these decks or ride elevators between them.[1]

A 20-ft scale model of the ark was first built by AiG staff members in Kentucky during 1999 for use in their Creation Museum.[2] In 2005 AiG started raising money for construction of their ark project.[3][4]
