In addition to the expected exhibits featuring stories from the Holy Book, there are many other interesting sights and artwork. For example, a full-size replica of the Liberty Bell, glass-enclosed spaces with views of the U.S. Capitol, Washington Monument and other familiar city landmarks.

There’s also a glass-covered outdoor garden that displays living plant species mentioned in the Bible. Nearby is an interesting replica of an ancient Hebrew village from the time of Jesus, complete with the Christmas manger scene from Nazareth at the center.

Inside is a variety of modern theater stages, all with the latest in electronic presentations, from realistic projections to enormous TV screens that display Old and New Testament dramas. Admission is free, but expect to be asked for donations of $15 per adult and $10 per child. The address is 400 4th Street SW., near the National Mall. www.museumofthebible.org
