The Dunham Bible Museum, with its extensive collection of rare Bibles, is dedicated to telling the story of the most important book in the world. On public display are: ancient manuscripts, decoratively illuminated medieval Scriptures, examples of the earliest printed Bibles, the earliest Bibles in English, the earliest Bibles printed in America, and Bible translations from across the centuries and around the world.

The Museum’s creative exhibits awaken and enhance an appreciation of the history, preservation, and influence of the one Book most influential in individual lives and in the culture of civilizations.


Permanent exhibits feature the history of the Bible, from manuscripts, through the printed page, and the earliest English and American Bibles, as well as many other translations. We are pleased to have special exhibits on the Bible on the Moon and The St. John's Bible.
