International Museum Day

International Museum Day draws attention to the importance of museums in cultural exchange, helping develop understanding among peoples of the world!
But did you know that of the estimated 55,000 museums in 202 countries there are more museums in the US than Starbuck’s and McDonald’s—combined?!

In our nation’s capital alone are the Air and Space Museum, the Holocaust Museum, the new National Museum of African American History and Culture, and many more!
But the countdown is on for the November opening of Museum of the Bible—an encounter with this Book of all books in a most immersive and powerful way!

It’s forty-foot high entrance is flanked by massive bronze panels engraved with Genesis 1 from the Gutenberg Bible, inviting all people to engage with the history and narrative of the Bible, and its impact on every aspect of life!
