This place may make people hesitate due to the religious connotations, but rest assured that it's got plenty of 'objective' history and cultural anthropology to satisfy non-religious visitors. I also saw the Broadway musical Amazing Grace in their special theater upstairs, that was great.

It was very nice and good. Lot of history of our past president and about Jesus. I did expected a little bit more. Lot of information, history of the bibles and how they came about. Museum is clean, well organized and inspirational!

We enjoyed the entire museum. Learned a lot and even shed a tear or two. The section with prisoners sharing how the Bible has changed their lives really touched me. Definitely recommend !
