Lifting Up the Bible


Read the adventurous story of the creation and building of the world’s first museum dedicated solely to one book—the Bible.

Drawing on detailed firsthand accounts, Lifting Up the Bible brings the Museum’s creation to life, retelling the full background of the Museum, including the colorful stories of the Museum’s characters, concept, collection, and construction. It may be hard to believe an old refrigeration warehouse built in 1923 could be transformed into a museum, let alone one that includes such priceless artifacts, amazing displays, incredible architecture, and state of the art technology. The Museum began as a simple idea in the minds of a handful of people. Soon it was reaching out and capturing others—bringing more and more partners to the table. There was brainstorming followed by sketches. Innovation followed by clarification. Focus followed by concrete plans. And, finally, the moment to go for it. To take that first giant, collective step, trusting that everything would fall into place. The Museum is for every single person who desires to learn more about the amazing document that is the Bible.

The largest single museum under one roof in Washington D.C., and the first in the world to focus on honoring the Bible, Museum of the Bible provides guests with an immersive and personalized experience as they see the Bible in a whole new light.
