We were looking for this place, having seen the advert in the visitor guide, but managed to walk straight past the doorway. Fortunately we realised almost immediately, and climbed the stairs to the upper floor, where we found the lovely Sarah who directed us to the very informative displays, models, artefacts, and explanations of the bible. This activity is suitable... More

We were warmly greeted at the door and suggestions made as to which exhibitions to view in order - the model making in this museum is beyond excellent. Some life size models as well as genuine artifacts Well worth a visit -or two!

Took the kids to Bibleworld and the whole family enjoyed it. Interesting artefacts and there are beautiful, detailed models spanning the old and New Testament. There is an interactive hands on area which we all enjoyed and we were impressed that many of the exhibits had little activity cards next to them so that kids could appreciate them too.
