The museum in Washington, D.C. will be housed in a 430,000-square-foot building just two blocks from the National Mall and three blocks from the nation’s Capitol, and it will open in the fall of 2017. It will provide guests with an immersive and personalized experience as they explore the history, narrative, and impact of the Bible.
Museum of the Bible will be an unparalleled experience, using cutting-edge technology to bring the Bible to life. It will span time, space, and cultures, inviting everyone to engage with the Bible. With three permanent sections and space for temporary exhibits, there will always be something new to explore.
The Museum was announced in 2012; at that time the Green family was considering locations in Washington, D.C., Dallas, and New York City. In July 2012 the family announced the purchase of a site two blocks from the National Mall and the United States Capitol at 300 D. Street SW, near the Federal Center SW Metro station in the center of Washington, D.C. The building and site, the former Washington Design Center in D.C., was purchased for a reported $50 million. The building is a historically protected structure in a Renaissance Revival style. Renovations, additions to the building, and construction of exhibitions will cost an estimated $400 million.
