Museum of the Bible: What’s in it will truly surprise you! Fodor’s travel says it “Breaks the Mold of Museum Exhibiting,” and it’s easy to see why. Enter the 430,000-square-foot building — located just three blocks from the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. — and you’ll experience interactive galleries, one-of-a-kind attractions and hundreds of biblical artifacts that convey the global impact and fascinating history of one of the most influential, debated and best-selling books of all time. On the Impact of the Bible Floor, the Bible's influence is shown in many familiar though often surprising places, including arts, science, government and American culture. Don’t forget to ride Washington Revelations, where you will virtually soar over the nation’s capital and see the profound impact of the Bible on Washington, D.C.’s monuments and buildings. The Stories of the Bible Floor offers the THEA award-winning Hebrew Bible Experience, a 30-minute journey through the stories of the Hebrew Bible, a re-creation of a first-century Galilean village and a 270-degree theater depicting the remarkable story of how the followers of Jesus became a thriving community. The History of the Bible Floor features hundreds of artifacts documenting the Bible's preservation, translation and transmission across the centuries. Drive Thru History’s Dave Stotts tells the story in an engaging and entertaining way in mini-theaters throughout the floor. Visit for more information.
