Museum of the Bible Special Preview on Display at
Proclaim 16 in Nashville

Nashville, TN –  On Feb. 24-26, attendees at Proclaim 16, the 2016 National Religious Broadcasters International Christian Media Convention, will get a sneak peek of the 430,000-square-foot, $400 million Museum of the Bible. Scheduled to open two blocks from the National Mall and three blocks from the U.S. Capitol in Washington in the fall of 2017, the museum invites all people—people of all faiths or no faith, adults and children, the intellectually curious and seasoned scholars alike—to engage with the Bible.

The free exhibit in Nashville is open to NRB conference attendees and the general public. The 7,300-square-foot display will preview artifacts, immersive settings and interactive technologies destined for the Washington museum. NRB exhibit visitors will experience some of the rare biblical texts and artifacts slated for the Washington museum’s three primary exhibit floors dedicated to a scholarly and engaging presentation of the history, narrative and impact of the Bible.
