A conservative Christian family-run company called Hobby Lobby has helped create a Museum of the Bible in Washington DC that is 430,000-square-feet and worth $500 Million. The massive building is eight levels with 22-foot high digital ceilings and is larger than DC’s National Air Museum and the Space Museum.
The museum is set to open November 18th, but not without plenty of controversies. The company Hobby Lobby has added a collection of more than 40,000 ancient biblical artifacts to the museum which have said to be illegally smuggled from the Middle East. They have already been fined and had to forfeit many of their pieces. But this hasn’t stopped the mega museum’s doors from opening.
Some say the museum is evangelical propaganda, while others say it’s an amazing experience which opens your eyes to so many aspects of thebible.
