The project, brainchild of Ken Ham, evolution-denier and president of the CreationistChristian organization Answers in Genesis (AiG), is partially funded by the secular state of Kentucky through sales tax incentives, despite the fact that it is a for-profit enterprise. Adults will have the opportunity to “experience the pages of the Bible like never before” for $40, while people with kids will have to pay $28 for a 1-day ticket for their young ones.

Ham claims that, once completed, the Ark will become the world’s biggest timber frame structure. It took thousands of workers two years to build the 510-foot-long, 85-foot-wide structure in Williamstown, northern Kentucky. Beside various educational programs, the structure will also feature an upscale restaurant on the top deck.
