Experience the Word come to Life in a new permanent gallery for The Saint John’s Bible
Guests are able to view 28 original folios from various volumes of The Saint John’s Bible with exhibition themes changing throughout the year. Manuscripts and rare books from HMML’s collections accompany each exhibition.
