Children and Museum of the Bible

Genesis 33:5 says, "Then Esau looked up and saw the women and children. 'Who are these with you?' he asked. Jacob answered, 'They are the children God has graciously given your servant.'" And at Museum of the Bible, families with young ones are most likely to enjoy the children's area! What child wouldn't want to help Peter catch fish, or push the pillars over like Samson, or experience "walking on water?"

Also see Charles the Fifth's prayer book, made in the early 1500s to prepare the young man to assume the role of Holy Roman emperor. Or an eighteenth-century "hieroglyphic Bible," filled with picture puzzles to help children learn to read the Bible! From play areas to prayer books, all children are invited to engage with this book of all books.
