A Collection of Bible Museums & Exhibits

The Bible is a living record of God’s word, meant to be personally engaged with on a daily basis. Yet it also has a fascinating historical side to it that transcends continents, cultures, and millennia. One way of capturing its illustrious and storied past is by devoting museums to its multifaceted existence. We thought it would be a service to you to provide a list of Bible museums and exhibits in one location for easy reference. If you know of museums that should be included here, please let us know.
