MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WTAQ) - The Milwaukee Public Museum will display fragments of the 2,000-year-old Dead Sea Scrolls starting Friday. The documents were found in caves near the Dead Sea in 1947 – and some scholars believe the Scrolls validated the Old Testament and the start of Christianity. The exhibit describes the archaeological history of the Holy Land around the time the Scrolls were created. There are close to 200 manuscripts, photos, artifacts, interactive displays, and more. The display is called “Dead Sea Scrolls and the Bible – Ancient Artifacts, Timeless Treasures.” It’s the largest temporary exhibit ever put on by the Milwaukee Public Museum. The display opens Friday, and continues through June 6th.
Coast to Coast AM 12:00 AM - 5:00 AM
