“Dead Sea Scrolls” Now Open in Denver
DENVER – “Dead Sea Scrolls,” the exhibition that has captivated millions around the world, opened March 16 at Denver Museum of Nature & Science.
The regional premiere of this exhibition is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see authentic Dead Sea Scrolls, ancient manuscripts that include the oldest known biblical documents dating back more than 2,000 years. Ten scrolls will be displayed when the exhibition opens. Due to strict preservation requirements, 10 different scrolls will arrive halfway through the run to replace the 10 initial scrolls. This will make it possible to see a total of 20 scrolls while the exhibition is in Denver. Each rotation includes a scroll that has never before been on public display.
In addition, more than 600 authentic artifacts from the ancient Middle East will immerse guests in historic traditions and beliefs that continue to impact world cultures today. The authentic objects include inscriptions and seals, weapons, stone carvings, terracotta figurines, coins, shoes, textiles, mosaics, ceramics, jewelry and a three-ton stone from the Western Wall in Jerusalem, believed to have fallen in 70 A.D.
Timed tickets will be required and advance reservations are strongly encouraged. For tickets and information, visit DMNS.org/DeadSeaScrolls or call 303.370.6000.
