When Clark Construction was deep in the process of building the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, DC, it decided to take on another — and far different — museum challenge: The Museum of the Bible.
The $400 million museum is funded by the family of evangelical Hobby Lobby President Steve Green, whose personal collection will fill the 430,000-square-foot building. Green is also serving as museum chairman.
While the artifacts on display are largely historical, the technology used to take visitors through the space looks toward the future. Cary Summers, the museum’s president, said the goal is to create “the most technologically advanced museum in the world.”
