The current Dead Sea Scrolls exhibition at the California Science Museum offers a look back at writings of two millennium distance. Remarkably they are as meaningful today as they were when first written in 215 b.c. The scrolls not only relate to the Hebrew Bible but offer glimpses of people and their way of life two thousand years ago.
At the Science Museum, besides exhibits of the scrolls, over 600 artifacts display a march through history including the creation of writing and adoption of a written language
The current exhibition at the California Science Center is the largest of the dead sea scrolls ever mounted outside Israel and was created with the Israel Antiquities Authority.
The Dead Sea Scrolls Exhibition will continue at the California Science Museum until September 7, 2015. It is highly recommended that tickets be ordered in advance since the exhibition has already been a block buster success with tickets often sold out for a given day.
