WASHINGTON, DC---Seven years in the making and billing itself as “the most technologically advanced museum in the world,” the Museum of the Bible is slated to open its doors to the public in November 2017. Six stories tall—atop two basement floors—crowned by a rooftop garden featuring biblical plants and vegetation, the museum has 430,000 square feet of exhibition space. Its location is formidable—just three blocks of the Capitol in the heart of Washington, D.C. Five exhibit floors will house no fewer than 40,000 biblical and religious artifacts, including 500 “world-class artifacts” such as “writings dating to the time of Abraham [and] fragments of the Dead Sea Scrolls” that Museum officials characterize as priceless.
