Museum of Biblical History Staff • 04.27.2016
On September 28, 2014, an experiment began at the Museum as part of an idea for an activity that was eventually scrapped during the process of the experiment. For some time, the Museum staff had been trying to find ways to increase the Museum’s interaction with visitors. It was decided that experimental archaeology was an excellent method to bring the information we provide in our exhibits to life, and to bridge the gap between our visitors and Biblical history. The Museum of Biblical History has always tried to find multifaceted ways to offer exemplary information; but also to provide a hands-on approach to bridging the gap of time and culture between our visitors and the Bible. Traditionally we have accomplished this through Archaeology Field School every summer, tours to the lands of the Bible, multimedia events, interactive presentations, music, and genuine artifacts that you can hold in your hands and touch, and much more. Experimental archaeology has since become a fantastic addition to our tools in Biblical education.
