Scripture and Science Family Fun Day: The Great Expedition

Head indoors for some summer fun with your family to explore the intersection of scripture and science in Museum of the Bible’s exhibition Scripture and Science: Our Universe, Ourselves, Our Place. At Family Fun Day, our educators at “Mission Command” will launch families on the Great Expedition, which will take you all over the museum and will grow your knowledge, skills, and understanding of our universe and your place in it all.

The race is on!

The Great Expedition is a competition similar to that on the popular CBS show, The Amazing Race. Your family will compete against other families to solve clues and complete tasks connected to our Scripture and Science exhibit. Along your journey toward the finish line, you will meet Copernicus and learn about our planetary orbit, astronomy, and cosmic balance. Natural earth cycles, biological discoveries, and philosophical debates encountered on the expedition will transform your understanding of the world, and understanding the anatomy of the human body, our biological inheritance, and technological advancements will renew your sense of purpose and potential impact.

This fun, full-day event will foster curiosity and critical thinking skills while deepening your connections with one another and the world around you. Sign your family up today and see if you make it to the prize at the winner’s circle.

Makerspace (Education Area)

Have some trivia fun with Kahoot. We have 100 questions to challenge and immerse you in the content of our Scripture and Science exhibition. Think you know about Copernicus, planetary orbits, biological discoveries, and more? Test your knowledge and see how many you can answer! Challenge your friends or bring a team because the highest score wins a prize!


If you like games like SuperFight or Funemployment, then you will enjoy SuperDiscourse. Pretending to be one of the historical figures from our Scripture and Science exhibition, convince the crowd to fund your latest invention! There may be unusual pairings, so get ready to use critical and creative thinking. Challenge a family member or friend to join the fun. After you present your inventions, the scientist with the most funders wins a prize.

Science Karaoke

Join us as we sing along to a variety of songs all related to scripture and science. You’ll see throwbacks from “Schoolhouse Rock!” together with new hits. Kick off karaoke with special guests Galaxy Girl & the Rocketz, featuring members of Museum of the Bible’s Education Department!

Film Screening

Can you imagine driving a car through our solar system? Join us to see how documentarians and friends Alex Gorosh and Wylie Overstreet created the first scale model of the solar system with complete planetary orbits in the middle of a lakebed in Nevada. This short film shows how vast our solar system really is.


All activities either begin or are held in the Education Makerspace on Floor B1. The Makerspace will be open from 10:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. for you to enjoy science-oriented activities, games, puzzles, and books, take a self-guided tour, and maybe even meet a scientist from the past.
