Overview

Please know that we have recently changed the name of our museum to BIBLICAL HISTORY CENTER. We wanted a clearer name to depict who we are and what exactly we do. Nothing else about the museum has changed aside from our name. We are currently in the process of switching over the TripAdivsor page information. Please bare with us as we make that transition.** Our mission at the Biblical History Center is to help people experience the ancient biblical world, its history, and culture. We have an Archaeological Replica Garden with life-size replicas of archaeological digs including a typical house, Roman step theater, goat hair tent, tombs, and more. Our Biblical Life Artifacts Gallery houses 250 artifacts from Israel and is one of seven of its kind in the world! We also have fun activities available for kids and teens. Reservations are required for most activities.

A bit overwhelming at times because there is so much to see. I would like to go back and spend a lot longer. Allow yourself a couple of hours. But beautifully done. I learned a lot.
