Hobby Lobby’s bible museum to open in D.C.

Hobby Lobby

FORT SMITH, Ark. (AP) – The president of Oklahoma City-based Hobby Lobby says a Bible museum to hold his family’s collection in Washington, D.C. is expected to open in 2017.

Steve Green spoke to some 600 attendants of the Fort Smith Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast on Friday. The Christian Business Men’s Committee invited him to speak at the event more than a year ago.

Green says the museum will display his family’s extensive collection of biblical artifacts. The collection is one of the world’s largest private collections of biblical antiquities.

More than 100 items from the collection were on display at the Vatican during Lent two years ago.

The Bible museum will be located two blocks from the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum.
