This museum, founded in 1924, is certainly one of Southern California's forgotten gems. The collection here contains a wealth of Middle Eastern artifacts, some of which are more than 2,000 years old. Collected by explorer Antonio F. Futterer during his years abroad, some of the smaller items here include lamps, bottles and coins. The impressive mummy casket dates 600 years before the birth of Christ. Today, Holyland Exhibition can be visited only by appointment for a small fee, which covers a tour and refreshments. Disabled access is limited to the ground floor.
as lad of12 i use to visit this little museum. this was in 1944-45. iwas fasinated by what i saw there and still remenber how mysterious it was to me.i recall how the little bells would ring when you entered and the inside was dim and cool. i do not remember who was there at the time but they were very friendly and helpful. at the time we lived on oak glen place. it was a wonderful experience and one that i enjoyed greatly.
I am impressed every time I visit the Holyland Exhibition. With world conditions the way they are today, many will not have the opportunity to visit the actual Holyland, but through the Holyland Exhibition, you can learn and see for yourself much that will enhance your Bible study. Interesting for young and old alike.
