Watch Our Tour of the New Museum of the Bible in Washington

On 11.17.17 11:47 AM posted by Genevieve Wood

The Museum of the Bible*opened its doors to the public on Friday, Nov. 17. We got a sneak peek when the museum’s director of content, Seth Pollinger, took us on a tour of one section of the over 400,000 square feet museum.

Considering there are over 500 artifacts and biblical texts in the History of the Bible exhibits alone, it’s estimated that it would take nine days (72 hours) to read every placard, see every artifact, and experience every activity in the museum.

The Museum of the Bible is located near many of the Smithsonian museums scattered along the National Mall in Washington. It is privately funded, most significantly by the Green family of Oklahoma who is best known for owning the world’s largest arts and craft retailer, Hobby Lobby.

Asked about the project, Steve Green, who serves as the museum’s chairman of the board, said in a statement: “The Bible is the best-selling, most translated book of all time and is arguably history’s most significant piece of literature. It has had an unquestionable influence on science, education, democracy, arts and society.”
