Bible Museum Trip
Open to all ages!
Discover the Museum of the Bible – Washington DC with the Shady Grove Seniors
Wednesday – April 17, 2019
Don’t miss out on this opportunity to see the newest museum in Washington DC! The Museum of the Bible, which opened in November 2017, documents the narrative, history and impact of the Bible. With 1150 items from the museum’s permanent collection and 2000 items on loan from other institutions and private collectors, the museum claims to have amassed one of the largest assemblies of biblical artifacts and texts in the world. It features some of the most advanced exhibit technology in the country. In addition to the exhibits, the museum features a beautiful, two story glass roof with a biblical garden and theater.
Once arriving, enjoy a guided tour that will focus what there is to see on each floor. The History Floor features many of the greatest discoveries associated with the biblical text, including some of the earliest known writing such as the Dead Sea Scroll fragments; the Narrative Floor which is dedicated to telling the stories of the bible; and the Impact Floor that focuses on the Bible’s immense influence, not only on cultures and various aspects of civilization, but also on the lives of individuals. Topics covered include the Bible’s influence on the arts, science, government, education, family, pop culture, and American history.
A $10 meal voucher will be included today for lunch at the museum’s Manna Restaurant which offers entrees with a more Mediterranean flare (you will be responsible for any amount over $10). Seats will be held for our group. Then enjoy the afternoon exploring the museum at your leisure. For the more adventurous try the Washington Revelations (additional fee) which is a standing experience on a moving floor board, that simulates flying over Washington while viewing biblical inscriptions on our monuments and memorials. Your guide will explain more about this.
