The hands-on human experience!
Elisabethkirche in Salzburg presents the only exhibition of its kind in Europe to present the treasures of the bible and many stories from the Good Book in such a way as to allow visitors to experience them with all their senses on around 600m² of floor space.
Bibelwelt is more of an adventure playground than a typical museum, as is obvious when you enter the hands-on exhibition through a gigantic ear. Inside the church there are portrayals of the stories of Jesus and Paul. An audio guide is used to navigate visitors around this very unconventional display.
Salzburg’s ‘Bibelwelt’ includes:
- An oriental market
- A 40 m² map of the Mediterranean outlining the journeys of Paul the Apostle
- Dark passageways and unsteady floors reflect Jesus’ tale of woe
- A one-arm bandit: the ‘Mercy Slot-Machine’
The hands-on museum has been designed to encourage ‘curious individuals’ of all ages to find out more, and to reveal the cultural treasures in the bible to everyone!
