RTD Tour: The Dead Sea Scrolls at DMNS

Date and Time: 
Wednesday, August 15, 2018 - 10:00am to 2:30pm
Denver Museum Special Exhibit


Dead Sea Scrolls is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see au­thentic Dead Sea Scrolls, ancient manuscripts that include the oldest known biblical documents dating back over 2,000 years. The scrolls will be dramatically presented within a massive ex­hibit case featuring carefully regulated individual chambers, along with the full English translation.

Ten scrolls will be displayed when the exhibition opens. Due to strict preservation requirements, 10 different scrolls will arrive halfway through the run to replace the 10 initial scrolls. This will make it possible to see a total of 20 scrolls while the exhibi­tion is in Denver. Each rotation includes a scroll that has never before been on public display.

RTD bus will pick us up at the Dad Clark Park and Ride at University and Dad Clark.  Bus fare, cash, is $2.60 which you will give directly to the bus driver.

Times are approximate.  We will meet at about 10 am, drive to the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, and will have a timed entry to the exhibit.  We will be at the museum for 3 hours, then head back to  Dad Clark, arriving approximately 2:30 pm-3:00 pm.   So there will be plenty of time at the Museum to see the Dead Sea Scrolls, have lunch, and see other exhibits, or just sit back and people watch....the choice is yours.
