A conservative Christian family-run company called Hobby Lobby has helped create a Museum of the Bible in Washington DC that is 430,000-square-feet and worth $500 Million. The massive building is is eight levels with 22-foot high digital ceilings and is larger than DC’s National Air Museum and the Space Museum.
The museum is set to open November 18th, but not without plenty of controversy. The company Hobby Lobby has added a collection of more than 40,000 ancient biblical artifacts to the museum which have said to be illegally smuggled from the Middle East. They have already been fined and had to forfeit many of their pieces. But this hasn’t stopped the mega museums doors from opening.
