A new exhibit featuring a small selection of items from the Passages exhibit is currently under construction in the Palm Plaza area of the Creation Museum. The collection, which is sponsored by the Hobby Lobby chain of arts and crafts stores, features some of the manuscripts from the Green Collection.
The entire Green Collection is made up of more than 30,000 artifacts, including cuneiform tablets, Dead Sea Scrolls, unpublished papyri, and rare illuminated manuscripts. Additionally, the collection contains parts of the Gutenberg Bible, the Wycliffe Bible, and even tracts and Bibles of Martin Luther. For more information about the Passages touring exhibit, as well as the Bible museum that will open in Washington DC as a permanent home for the Green Collection, visit www.explorepassages.com. We are thrilled to be able to exhibit a small selection of some of these items at the Creation Museum.
Steve Green, the president of Hobby Lobby, will speak at the Creation Museum during our special dedication ceremony for this extraordinary exhibit on October 18. As we learn what items from this incredible collection will be coming to the Creation Museum (as well as when the exhibit will open), we’ll share it with you so you can start making your plans to visit the museum and view some of the artifacts in the new Passages exhibit.
