My visit and experience at this museum was very rewarding and somewhat breathtaking. I love the history of the bible and to learn how many hands and lives have been touched by God's Word is amazing. The Lord, is doing something that no eyes have seen and no ears have heard. I definitely am purchasing membership. My daughter loves learning about Jesus and other members of the body of Christ. She asked to go back to. I hope to return before the year is over.
The museum is packed with printed information, but also has enough more stimulating experiences that add variety and kept my easily impatient mind occupied. It is indeed a museum of the Bible, and several floors are dedicated to it's subject; the sources for, the impact and influence of and the historical figures influential in the Bibles development and spread. Although there's an impressive amount of information the exhibits manage to avoid being dry and overly academic and the presentations are designed to keep short attention spans occupied and engaged using a clever combination of videos, lights, and sound as well as shapes - the geometric designs used in display housings and the divisions of exhibition areas add a nice level of stimulation and engagement. The upper floors are more visual and hands on keeping the visitor moving and adds a sense of exploration. The Bible without a doubt is a spiritual guide and holy text to believers. But those with a more secular, even skeptical mind set may find the museum interesting and the experience more enjoyable and interesting than expected. Be aware that the security hurdle is time consuming -I strongly suggest carrying as little as possible on your visit. That said, there is a coat/bag check available. There are several large elevators, easy access entrances and doorways, lots of bathrooms, a cafe, big gift shop, a roof garden and the whole museum is well lit and roomy. Photography without flash is allowed and encouraged. In a city overflowing with free museums, the entrance fee is steep, and that's what will keep me from going more frequently.
