The Siegfried H. Horn Archaeological Museum is home to over 8,500 artifacts and objects from the Bible lands. Come explore our seven exhibit halls:

Main Exhibit Hall—Experience a life-sized Bedouin tent filled with authentic Jordanian Bedouin antiques. Get up close with a 15th century B.C. Syrian bronze statuette of the Canaanite god Ba’al.

Mesopotamian Hall—See a brick from Babylon with Nebuchadnezzar II’s name stamped on it. This hall also boasts a replica of the Obelisk of Shalamannesser III.

Transjordan Hall—Andrews University’s commitment to field archaeology is highlighted with displays of objects excavated from three sites: Tall Hesban, Tall al-‘Umayri, and Tall Jalul.

Life of Christ Hall—The days of Christ come alive with a three-dimensional model of Jerusalem accompanied by objects from the land where Jesus walked, including Roman nails.

Classroom Hall—Step into a biblical story line as you are surrounded by murals painted by renowned local artist Nathan Greene. Biblical period artifacts add a real-life touch to Greene’s masterful visual story-telling.

Egyptian Hall—Walk into an Egyptian tomb to view a sarcophagus and a mummified Egyptian Ibis. View a life-size replica of Tutankhamen’s golden throne.

Cuneiform Hall—Peruse through the Hartford Cuneiform Tablet Collection which is one of the ten largest cuneiform collections in North America.

Visit us on Sabbath afternoons from 3-5 p.m. Tours are available during the week by appointment only.
