The Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C. opened its doors to the public in November 2017, and its president, Cary Summers, revealed that he is pleased by the visitor turnout. Summers relayed to Christian News Journal that attendance to the museum had been "above expectations" so far and they had to increase sites where guests could take a break from sightseeing to eat. According to reports, 200,000 people have actually been to the Museum of the Bible two months after it opened. The Museum of the Bible stands at a 430,000 square foot property that took $500 million from the family that owns Hobby Lobby to build. Its main presentations are interactive and digital, touching on the Bible's history that can also be personalized for visitors depending on their ages. [More]
