The Scriptorium

This museum is a non-sectarian library/research center, that houses the priceless Van Kampen Collection consisting of several thousand manuscripts, scrolls, and other religious artifacts. The collection is augmented by secondary resources, including the personal library of Eberhard Nestle, a leading 19th century biblical scholar and co-translator of the Greek Nestle/Aland New Testament text.

The walk-through experience of The Scriptorium transports visitors to various historical and geographical areas of the world, in which the displayed biblical documents originated, and gives guests a dramatic understanding of the history of the Bible, its parallel to the history of civilization, and its impact upon the world. Additionally, specially featured items are on display in our rotating-exhibit room, located within The Scriptorium's Ex Libris bookstore.
