The Bible’s Influence Is All around You

Perhaps no other book in history has had a greater impact on the world than the Bible. Its stories, expressions, and ideas have become so ingrained in our everyday lives they seem almost invisible. Discover how the Bible has shaped everything from your calendar to your clothes at Museum of the Bible.


Seven Floors of Immersive Experiences

Located in the heart of Washington, DC, Museum of the Bible offers an abundance of attractions, interactive exhibits, and fascinating artifacts. Our three main exhibit floors cover the history, narrative, and impact of the Bible. With special exhibits and our live theater, we’re always finding ways to show how the Bible impacts our lives.

Areas of Impact

Politics and Presidents

The Declaration of Independence marks the beginnings of our nation, but the biggest influence was written before 1776—the Bible. Discover how the Bible influences our government's foundations and the presidents today.

Did you know?

Although it isn't mandated for a president to swear in on the Bible, nearly every one has chosen to do so.

Fashion and Style

From the runway to the rack, several fashion designers have used the Bible as a creative source to make a fashion statement. See how top designers Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, and Jean Paul Gaultier used biblical stories and icons like the cross in high fashion.

Did you know?

The cross has been the most recognizable symbol from the Bible since the 6th century.

Calendars and Time

As you go about your day, the Bible’s presence is everywhere. Without it, the seven-day week might not have been formalized. From age-old calendars to the Atomic Clock, discover how our years, weeks, and days are influenced by the Bible.

Genesis 2:3

“Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.”

Artistic Expression

Fashion, art, and music inspire us, yet a surprising source of inspiration for artists like Michelangelo, Bob Dylan, and Da Vinci is the Bible. Don't miss the opportunity to see how its stories, symbols, and themes shape all types of artistic expression.

Bob Dylan, “Every Grain of Sand” (Inspired by Luke 12:7)

“Then onward in my journey, I come to understand that every hair is numbered like every grain of sand.”

Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

-Luke 12:7
