Located just two blocks from the National Mall and three blocks from the nation’s Capital, the
430,000-square-foot Museum of the Bible will amaze you from the moment you enter through the
40-foot-tall bronze doors at the entrance to the roof-top garden and restaurant, and everything
in-between. Floor by floor you are invited to explore and experience the history, narrative, and
impact of the Bible through the use of cutting-edge technology. The Museum has three permanent
sections, space for temporary exhibits, libraries, a children’s area, gift shop, a 500-seat theater
and much more. Generously, several of the world’s most prominent private collections of biblical
objects and artifacts have contributed to the creation of the Museum collections.

he connects you to history through food. Drawing upon the complex flavors and vibrant spices of
the Mediterranean, as well as Gray’s passion for all things seasonal, the menu includes falafel,
which is made of seasonally changing ingredients like green garlic, sweet peas, or roasted kabocha
squash; pistachio and golden lentil hummus; flatbreads with fig and walnut toppings; as well as
