7. Noah’s Ark 

Creation Museum Ark Construction

Inner Ark wall at the Creation Museum

For me the most fascinating exhibit at AIG’s Creation Museum was a 2-story partial replica of the construction of Noah’s Ark, complete with life-size animatronic humans, sound effects, and suggested construction techniques.

Nailing the Ark with "trunnels"

Edge-jointed Ark planking

These two signs describe conjectured construction techniques. The one on the left is about wooden nails, called “trunnels” or “tree nails” possibly used on the ark. The one on the right describes a technique for joining planks that withstands shear stress. Click the images to enlarge and read the signs.

Soli Deo Gloria.

Thou didst cover it with the deep as with a garment;
The waters were standing above the mountains.
At Thy rebuke they fled;
At the sound of Thy thunder they hurried away.
The mountains rose, the valleys sank down
To the place which Thou didst establish for them.
Thou didst set a boundary that they may not pass over;
That they may not return to cover the earth.
(Psalm 104:6-9)
