Traveling Exhibit Program

The Museum circulates a loan exhibit of objects for use in teaching. The traveling exhibit includes artifacts and replicas from the original Tell en-Nasbeh excavations such as lamps, oil juglets, sling stones, and ceramic pitchers. Along with labels and display posters, an informative and entertaining DVD accompanies every exhibit describing excavation techniques and what we can learn from archaeological remains.

Borrowers pay a borrowing cost of $125.00 to the Museum, and are responsible for the return S&H. The fees from the borrowing cost are to help maintain this program for future generations of enjoyment and we appreciate your support!

"Thanks for making this exhibit available. The Badè Museum provides a great educational tool."
-- Dr. Dorothy Jonaitis, OP (University of Dallas School of Ministry)

"You have a fine museum with fine services."
-- Carol Kloss (Biblical Institute of the Diocese of Joliet)
