New, Controversial Bible Museum Opens in Washington

  • Deborah Block

The world's best-selling book is the Bible, but the holy manuscript has been interpreted in different ways by different religions. In Washington, a new, privately funded Museum of the Bible opens to the public this weekend. Located near the U.S. Capitol, the $500 million museum features ancient artifacts, interactive displays and Bibles over the centuries. But as we hear from VOA's Deborah Block, the museum is also controversial.
