Outstanding experience. The only thing disappointing were their hamburgers we had for lunch at their Manna Restaurant. But we didn’t go for the food, so not counting off for that. Unfortunately, we… Full review by Charlie W

Beautiful architecture with an open and airy interior. Stations of the cross sculpture exhibit was very moving for a non-Catholic visitor. It feels like a relaxing library setting for many of the dis… Full review by MominOC


The History of the Bible
As soon as you enter the Museum of the Bible through its 40-foot bronze doors, its majesty is undeniable. The grand lobby is long and awe-inspiring, with a digital display on the ceiling that rotates through colorful designs throughout the day. Upon your opening stroll, you will immediately be aware that you have entered a museum like no other in the nation’s capital.The Museum of the Bible’s goal is to educate the public on the history of the Bible, its many narrative forms and its impact on societies around the world. The 430,000-square-foot museum is a wonder of design and architecture, the combined work of seven design firms. The building is located at 400 4th Street SW, a short walk from the Federal Center SW Metro station on the Orange, Blue and Silver lines.The museum's hours are 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. daily, with 9 a.m. early entry for museum members and groups every day except Sunday. The museum is closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day.Admission to the Museum of the Bible is free, but donations are highly suggested. Please note that timed passes are required for entry into the museum. You can reserve timed entry tickets and make group reservations on the museum's website.What’s inside the Museum of the Bible?After you journey through the visual sensation that is the museum’s lobby, you can walk up marble stairs or take an elevator to any of the exhibit floors. We recommend starting at the History of the Bible galleries, which begin on the fourth floor. Elevator riders are in for a treat: inside, a video screen rotates its images as you ride up, with music playing to set the mood for your exploration.The History of the Bible includes more than 600 artifacts inside its 11 galleries. Numerous media programs let you dig even deeper, including films and interactive touch tables. Discover the development of the Bible, from its use among small groups of people to its translation into hundreds of languages around the world. Find out how the text has been translated and shared, its influence on the Renaissance, the rise of the King James version and more. The space also features a 75-seat theater, where you can watch TV personality Dave Stotts go on a history-seeking adventure.Head down one floor and you will find the Stories of the Bible section, which is divided into three areas: The Hebrew Bible, The New Testament and The World of Jesus of Nazareth. The first of the three is a 14,000-square-foot deep dive into the narrative of the Hebrew Bible, featuring settings inspired by art using high-tech visuals. Guests will be immersed in the stories of Biblical figures like Noah, Abraham and David.The New Testament features interactive posters of key characters th
Het Museum of the Bible
Het Museum of the Bible is een museum in Washington DC dat het verhaal, de geschiedenis en de impact van de Bijbel documenteert. Het opende op 17 november 2017 en heeft 1.150 items in de permanente collectie en 2.000 items in bruikleen van andere instellingen en collecties. Het museum is niet-sektarisch en niet-politiek, en bekeert niet. Voormalig museumvoorzitter Cary Summers zei dat het doel is "de wereld opnieuw kennis te laten maken met het boek dat het hielp om het te maken, en de bezoeker tot zijn eigen conclusies te laten komen... We bestaan niet om mensen te vertellen wat ze ervan moeten geloven". . Ondanks de non-sektarische houding van het museum, moeten de leden van de raad van bestuur een "geloofsverklaring" ondertekenen. In het jaar voor de lancering stelde het museum vragen over de verwerving van zijn collectie, waaronder een federale zaak over gesmokkelde Iraakse antiquiteiten en duizenden klei-artefacten. De inwijdingsceremonie van het museum ontving een officiële pauselijke zegen van paus Franciscus, en de aanwezigen waren onder meer kardinaal Donald Wuerl, muzikant CeCe Winans, senaat Kapelaan Barry Black, Washington, DC burgemeester Muriel Bowser en de Israëlische ambassadeur Ron Dermer. Het Museum van de Bijbel biedt restaurants, waaronder een restaurant genaamd Manna dat koosjer eten serveert.
