Dead Sea Scrolls

En español

 

The regional premiere of the exhibition that has captivated millions around the world is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see authentic Dead Sea Scrolls, ancient manuscripts that include the oldest known biblical documents dating back over 2,000 years. The scrolls will be dramatically presented within a massive exhibit case featuring carefully regulated individual chambers, along with the full English translation.

 

In addition, the largest collection of artifacts from the ancient Middle East ever assembled for display 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, terra cotta figurines, coins, shoes, textiles, mosaics, ceramics, and jewelry.

 

The experience features a re-creation of the Western Wall from the old city of Jerusalem with an actual three-ton stone from the wall believed to have fallen in 70 CE. Guests may leave their handwritten notes with prayers that will be sent to Israel and placed at the wall. The tradition of putting notes between the stones began centuries ago.

 

The Dead Sea Scrolls represent one of the most significant archaeological discoveries of the 20th century. In 1947, a Bedouin goat herder stumbled upon a hidden cave along the shore of the Dead Sea. Concealed within were scrolls that had not been seen for 2,000 years. After extensive excavation, 972 remarkably preserved scrolls were uncovered, leading to decades of extraordinary scrutiny, debate, and awe. 

 

Dead Sea Scrolls is organized by the Israeli Antiquities Authority (IAA). It is presented in Denver by the Sturm Family Foundation, with major support from Henry and Lorie Gordon, and GHP Investment Advisors.
