The museum, which will likely open in 2016, will highlight the collection of the billionaire Green family of Oklahoma. That collection features more than 55,000 items including biblical artifacts ranging from Dead Sea Scrolls to Torah scrolls that survived the Holocaust. Museum officials expect to also showcase other prominent collections from across the globe.
That might sound to you like more snoozeum than museum, but consider this: The traveling exhibit that the museum is based on has lots of Bible-related, Spy Museum-style interactive exhibits. Operation St. Ambrose would make for the perfect date night.
Correction: This post originally identified the museum as the National Bible Museum. The museum has not yet been named.
