DALLAS – Museum of the Bible and Educational Opportunities Tours (EO Tours) are excited to announce an innovative new partnership aimed at enriching the understanding of the Bible's profound influence on global history, cultures, and individual lives. This collaborative affiliation will highlight the role of the Bible and its influence throughout the history of the world, on both ancient and modern cultures, and on individual lives today.
“We have so much admiration for EO Tours’ mission and vision to provide opportunities for Christian travel and for individuals to experience so many rich biblical journeys,” said Garrett Hinton, chief revenue officer at Museum of the Bible. “Many of their goals are parallel to ours, so we hope that together we can create even greater opportunities for people to engage with the Bible in whole new ways – either in the land of its birth or through our interactive exhibits highlighting its historical and cultural relevance.”
Located in the heart of Washington, DC, Museum of the Bible state-of-the-art exhibits are designed to engage and captivate, providing an immersive exploration of the Bible. All people are invited to experience 4,000 years of history shaped by the Bible through innovative and interactive exhibits.
Complementing this endeavor, Educational Opportunities Tours has transformed countless lives through its faith-centered journeys. As a travel operator that has specialized in delivering Christian journeys for more than 50 years, EO Tours has helped hundreds of thousands of people experience the Holy Land, church and biblical heritage sites, and other destinations of cultural and historical significance.
“I am excited about this new and unique partnership,” James Ridgway, chief executive officer for Educational Opportunities Tours stated. “Our organizations have very different areas of professional expertise but share the goal of bringing Bible stories, and the story of the Bible to life. The educational project we are co-producing will provide resources to enhance the experience of both visitors to the museum and travelers to the lands of the Bible.”
The partnership will be multi-faceted, with Museum of the Bible and EO Tours collaborating in many unique ways, including:
- Travelers on select EO journeys will receive a 1-year Museum of the Bible membership. This membership will open doors to the Museum and its online resources, enhancing the travel experience by deepening participants' comprehension of the Bible's historical impact.
- Museum of the Bible will curate unique virtual journeys to global destinations. These journeys will be accompanied by scholars, experts, and unique experiences, providing participants with insights and access not commonly available to the general public.
- EO Tours and MOTB are collaborating on the creation of at least 25 educational videos. Through these engaging productions, the story of the Bible, the early Church, the spread of the Christian faith, and their role in the history of the world will be vividly brought to life.
- Experts, scholars and faith leaders will present lectures, webinars and classes exclusive to Museum of the Bible members and EO Tours travelers. This access to profound knowledge will foster meaningful discussions and enhance the appreciation of the Bible's enduring significance.
