The Washington Times | Museum of the Bible gears up to open unique 430,000-square-foot site near U.S. Capitol

It is a mere three blocks from the U.S. Capitol and occupies a commanding 430,000-square-feet of very unique real estate. Among many features, the Museum of the Bible features 40-foot bronze doors, a rooftop garden and eight floors dedicated to the history, narrative, and impact of the Bible.

The $500 million, nonprofit museum — which has been under construction for two years — opens its doors in mid-November. An entire section is devoted to the “Bible in America,” which includes a 3,300-pound replica of the Liberty Bell, the first exhibit item to be installed in the eight-story facility.

Though the site has swarmed with hundreds of construction workers and technicians for months, the museum operation now has 68 jobs to fill, both full and part-time.

“Museum of the Bible offers a highly challenging yet profoundly meaningful work environment where every person on staff is unified behind a unique and global mission,” the organization advises in a public outreach.

Time is of the essence, though. There is a recruiting event at a hotel on Capitol Hill on Tuesday; applicants should visit for more information. Some of the jobs start as early as Aug. 1.

“Positions to be filled include guest services associates, ticketing agents and retail associates (38 full-time, 30 part-time). All part-time positions offer an hourly rate of $15.00/hour while full-time positions offer competitive benefits including: medical/dental/vision, company paid life insurance as well as the opportunity to participate in the organization’s retirement plan which offers a company match,” the museum advises.
