Our first stop was to the Passages Bible Exhibit in Atlanta, GA. My preacher husband and I had received free tickets at a pastor's conference we attended. We were so glad to find out about such a wonderful traveling exhibit, and didn't want to miss out on such a great opportunity for us and our children. (And yes, I did count it as a school day!)
The kids were so excited to have their very own headset and ipod. We all loved the ipods; you could simply type in the # of a specific exhibit, and you would hear commentary about it. They also had "scavenger hunt" type questions to find/figure out along the way.
At the entrance, learning how to use the ipods.
Checking our answers. The boys both received prizes. :)
We had a great time...spent about 3-4 hours here...still not enough time to see it all. One of my most important parts was the Gutenburg Gress exhibit. We all got a copy of scripture from the press. What fun to see the press at work! A quote that moved me (especially after experiencing the prior exhibits where men copied the Bible by hand):
"It's only a press, but a press from which will flow a constant stream. Through it, God will spread His Word. A spring of truth will flow from it. Like a new star it will scatter the darkness of ignorance and cause an unknown light to shine for all.
We were not allowed to take pictures inside, so here is a link to their website. If this traveling exhibit comes to a city near you, I hope you and your family will go. It is more than just a museum...it will move you--to think about all that had to happen to bring us God's Word as we have it today. Very humbling.
