The NEW Biblical Life Artifacts Gallery is an amazing opportunity to peer back across the ages to see what daily life was like in ancient times. 250 artifacts from the National Treasures of Israel, on long-term loan from the Israel Antiquities Authority, are exhibited in life-like settings.

Life of the Shepherd: See artifacts dating as far back as the Paleolithic Period (24,000 BCE and earlier) through the period of the Patriarchs and Matriarchs. Stone Age tools, Iron Age pottery, and more can be seen here.

Life of the Farmer: Ancient millstones as well as old farming implements are part of this display.

Old Testament Period Tomb: Learn more about burial practices in Old Testament times through this replica of a real tomb found in Jerusalem, including funeral dowry artifacts.

New Testament Period Tomb: This exhibit includes three Herodian Period (37 BCE-70 CE) bone boxes, as well as a stone sarcophagus.

Old Testament Period House: Peer into a house from ancient times and see pottery, oil lamps, storage jars, and more.

New Testament Period House: As you look into a house from the Roman period, you will see coins, column bases and capitals, glass containers, pottery, and Byzantine period pieces including pieces of a chancel screen and holy water font.

Life of the Fisherman: Ancient anchors, net weights and more help you better understand fishing practices around the Sea of Galilee, as well as the Murex shell industry of the Mediterranean.

Undersea Ship Disaster Exhibit: Here you will see amphora and other storage jars that were found in underwater archaeological excavations.
