A museum dedicated to the Bible recently opened in Washington, only three blocks away from Capitol Hill.

You don’t have to be a Catholic to enter the Museum of the Bible’s 39,000-square metre space. Founder Steve Green made it clear that the Museum was not established to preach, but to invite visitors to “engage” with the Bible.

The Museum showcases millennia-old manuscripts, a Jewish historical museum, a life-size burning bush, Noah’s ark, a recreation of a first-century Nazareth village complete with actors in period garments, and thousands of other religious artefacts. museumofthebible.org
