Worth a stop!

I am glad we went here on our way home. The gentleman who owns it is very nice and knows his stuff. The story of the arm pit bibles were very humbling.

We happened here by chance and were so glad we did. Mike, the owner, was friendly and very knowledgeable. As one of the other reviewers mentioned, it is small- just one room, but it contains historical Bibles and information and is quite interesting. There is no charge, but there is a box in case you would like to leave a... More

We discovered this by accident but glad we found it. If you are a Christian, you will enjoy seeing their display of historical Bibles. Some of their original bibles date back to the 1500's.

This museum is basically one room. It was very interesting to see all the old translations of the bible. I was in awe to see how old some of the translations really were. If you go, make sure you check out the arm pit bibles. Those were really neat. This museum is worth a quick stop if you are in... More

A very nice but small place. It was difficult because I had 2 small children with me. I would definitely go back without them.

Lots of information on the translation of the Bible. The guy working was very informative and a great teacher of the different translation of the Bible. We loved this museum.

Learn how the scriptures have been carefully passed down over hundreds of years through the Sovereignty of God. The caretakers of this small museum are sweet and full of Grace. They never ask for money, donations, or admission.....but make sure you contribute to ensure that this place stays open for others to enjoy.

We went here with high hopes and don't get me wrong, it was a nice little stop, but I chose to visit based on all of the comments about how informative the gentleman who runs it was. When we visited, he was not there. I believe his wife was running it that day and she was very kind and welcoming,... More

Went to see this museum. It's right next to the Allstate office at stoplight 13.7. This place is absolutely amazing. It is full of very rare Bibles, Bible history, illustrated writings, and Bibles in other languages. The gentleman who operates this museum is highly knowledgeable. I can't recommend this place enough.
