Dead Sea Scrolls

The world-famous Dead Sea Scrolls, one of the greatest archaeological finds of the 20th century, are drawing record crowds to the Gulf Coast Exploreum in Mobile, Alabama. The traveling exhibition, on display through April 24, showcases fragments of 12 different scrolls, including segments from the Old Testament books of Genesis-Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Psalms, Isaiah, and Jeremiah. "The Dead Sea Scrolls" also features pottery, coins, sandals, and other artifacts on loan from the Israel Antiquities Authority. The objects were found close to the settlement of Qumran on the shores of the Dead Sea, near the caves where the scrolls were unearthed. Two giant-screen IMAX films, Mysteries of Egypt and Mystery of the Maya, complement the show, which includes an audiovisual presentation on the scrolls.
