Final weeks! Closes April 27th.
They've been called the most significant archaeological find of the last century. Experience the most comprehensive collection of ancient artifacts from Israel ever organized, November - April at The Leonardo
Dead Sea Scrolls: Life and Faith in Ancient Times includes one of the largest collections of the priceless 2,000-year-old Dead Sea Scrolls. Discovered by a shepherd in 1947, the Scrolls contain the oldest known copies of the Hebrew Bible.
On display with the Scrolls are more than 600 objects from the Biblical to Byzantine Period in Israel, including many that have never been publicly exhibited. You will see a three-ton stone from Jerusalem's Wailing Wall, the remains of religious articles, weapons of war, stone carvings, textiles and beautiful mosaics along with everyday household items such as jewelry and ceramics.
The Leonardo is one of only six U.S. Museums to display this priceless collection. The Utah engagement of the exhibition is made possible by the Utah State Legislature and the Larry H. Miller Group of Companies.
This exhibition was created by the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) from the collections of the Israel National Treasures and produced by Discovery Times Square and The Franklin Institute.
The Leonardo's engagement of Dead Sea Scrolls: Life and Faith in Ancient Times will be accompanied by special programming, including lectures, theme nights, and other unique activities. Make sure you don't miss a thing by signing-up for our Dead Sea Scrolls Programming E-Newsletter below!
