Museum of the Bible Opens in Washington D.C.

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

A new museum inviting “all people to engage with the Bible” opened in Washington D.C. this weekend. Located right off the National Mall, the Museum of the Bible features six stories of exhibits, ranging from replicas of ancient Palestine to how the Bible remains one of the most impactful texts today.


The museum began as a traveling exhibit in 2009 and was the brain-child of Hobby Lobby owner Steve Green. Though Green is famously evangelical in his religious beliefs, Museum of the Bible strives not involve a specific religious or political group so everyone, regardless of beliefs, can learn something about the Bible in a comfortable environment. The museum also employs the use of the latest digital guides for museum-goers.

According to their website, “The museum will provide stations of 7 large touch tables to customize guests’ museum experience. When visitors set their digital guides on the tables, a menu will appear around the device, recognizing guests’ names and providing a fun and interactive way to create a custom tour, reserve seats for some in-demand theaters, and manage rendezvous points for an entire group. These tables use cutting-edge technology to detect the specific location of the device on the table, track guest movement and allow drag-and-drop selections from the table to the digital guide for custom tour creation.”


You can learn more about the Museum of the Bible here at their official website.
