Even before its opening on Friday, November 17th, the 430,000-square-foot nonprofit Museum of the Bible was already getting rave reviews, according to museum executive director Dr. Tony Zeiss.

"We could not be more excited to see the surprised looks on the faces of our visitors," he tells OneNewsNow. "Their basic word is it's 'incredible.'"

He believes this new venue is the best Washington, D.C. site to invite all people to engage with the Bible.

"We were very fortunate to find a building that came open for sale about three years ago," Dr. Zeiss reports. "It's just two blocks off of the National Mall, two blocks south of the National Air and Space Museum, and only three blocks from our nation's Capitol. So we're really excited that it's happening at this time in our generation and in our nation's capital to have the first world-class museum to the Bible. It's pretty awesome."

While the museum is free to the public, Dr. Zeiss asserts, "It's not a one-and-done museum. It'll take the average person nine- to eight-hour days to see everything, so people will come back year after year."

Hobby Lobby President Steve Green serves as chairman of the board at the museum, which is described as "an innovative, global, educational institution whose purpose is to invite all people to engage with the history, narrative and impact of the Bible."
