Mission Statement

Museum of the Bible exists to invite all people to engage with the Bible though our four pillars: Research, Traveling Exhibits, Education, and a Museum currently under construction in Washington, DC.

Description

In 2017, Museum of the Bible will open its 430,000-square-foot museum in Washington, D.C. Located just two blocks from the National Mall and three blocks from the Capitol, the museum is designed to provide guests with an immersive and personalized experience as they explore the history, narrative, and impact of the Bible.

Museum of the Bible’s traveling exhibits, which share these biblical treasures and their stories with the public, began traversing the globe in 2011. As of 2014, traveling exhibits have visited five U.S. cities and three other countries. Based upon public response, we are excited to have numerous opportunities to be planning new exhibits and new locations worldwide.

Museum of the Bible also supports scholarship and academic research through the Green Scholars Initiative, which brings together established and young scholars to pioneer groundbreaking research on items in the Green Collection. Utilizing convergent media to create an interactive student learning experience, Museum of the Bible is developing a high school Bible curriculum for use in markets around the world. While thousands of schools already use other biblical curricular options, Museum of the Bible’s offering is distinct on four fronts: its tie to a major museum, its access to a collection of artifacts, its engagement with a breadth of leading scholars, and its robust level of technology.
