The Alan and Muriel Pense Biblical Archaeology Museum
The Alan and Muriel Pense Biblical Archaeology Museum has developed over several years, beginning in 1980, through the generosity of Dr. and Mrs. Alan W. Pense. The museum contains nearly 500 archaeological artifacts from the lands of the Bible. Although focusing on the Old and New Testament periods, the collection contains pieces from every period of ancient history, from Neolithic to Medieval times. The artifacts come from all parts of the Biblical world, including Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Phoenicia, Assyria, Babylonia, Sumer, Persia, Cyprus, Asia Minor, Crete, Greece, and Italy.
The nature and scope of the collection make it an invaluable resource for teaching, study, and research at the Seminary. Every book of the Bible is touched by it in one way or another.
