The Biblical History Center (formerly Explorations in Antiquity) helps people encounter the ancient biblical world through its history and culture. Through authentic archaeological replicas, Biblical meal presentations, daily life artifacts in the Biblical Life Artifacts Gallery, lectures and other personal experiences, ancient Middle Eastern life comes back to life today.
Biblical History Center provides engaging ways in which visitors can experience the daily life of the ancient world. In the Time Tunnel, guests learn about the worship practices of pagans, Jews and Christians by exploring replicas of excavated houses of worship. The Archaeological Replica Garden houses 23 life-size replicas of structures found in excavations in Israel, Malta and Jordan. The popular Biblical Meal is a full four-course meal with food items that were available in the ancient world.
Children have the opportunity to bake bread just like ancient nomadic peoples in the Shepherd’s Bread Experience and/or participate in an archaeology-style Kid’s Dig that teaches them all about the past and the world of the archaeologist. Biblical History Center is one of only eight museums in the world to house a long-term collection of artifacts from the Israeli Antiquity Authority in our Biblical Life Artifacts Gallery.
