Museum of the Bible Announces Major Exhibit in 2020

-

The Museum of the Bible announced plans for a major, temporary exhibit that will explore the relationship between science and the Bible.

The exhibit in Washington, DC will be open to the public in the summer of 2020. It will showcase artifacts from the museum’s collection and from institutions around the world.

Through this exhibit and accompanying initiatives, we hope guests will leave with a deeper appreciation for humanity’s shared curiosity in the big questions that ultimately inspire both scientific inquiry and biblical exploration. —Ken McKenzie, Museum of the Bible President and CEO

The multimedia and thematic display will delve into how people have turned to science and the Bible to answer the fundamental questions of existence. The ambitious project will be funded by grants from the John Templeton Foundation and the Templeton Religion Trust.

“In keeping with the museum’s intent to cater to all learning styles, this exhibition will not only be informative, but engaging,” said Museum of the Bible President and CEO Ken McKenzie. “Through this exhibit and accompanying initiatives, we hope guests will leave with a deeper appreciation for humanity’s shared curiosity in the big questions that ultimately inspire both scientific inquiry and biblical exploration.”

The year-long exhibit will feature past scientific discoveries, including Copernicus’ heliocentric model, Newton’s laws of motion and Darwin’s theory of natural selection, as well as current topics such as the origin of the cosmos.

The gallery will explore the relationship between science and the Bible, asking these six existential questions:
1) How did it all begin?
2) What keeps the universe running?
3) Are we different from animals?
4) What are we made of?
5) Where are we going?
6) Are we alone?

The exhibit will not only display artifacts, there will also be academic conferences, programs, creation of educational materials for classroom use, among others.
