Overview
More
The Bible Museum has on display historic bibles which offer a rare insight into the development of the English language and also the story of writing and printing. A collection of over 2,000 Bibles, scrolls, musical instruments, and related artefacts are also available to view. Another interesting aspect of the museum is the Butterfly Garden. Open between November and May (depending on the weather and seasonal conditions) many varieties of butterflies can be seen floating around this specially designed garden. At certain times butterflies can be seen emerging from their chrysalis. Autumn is the best time to see the butterflies and garden. Ellen and Jean Reid have been collecting Bibles for over 30 years and their guided tour takes around an hour, so please book a tour in advance, by email or phone. Groups are by appointment only. If you're driving a long distance to visit the museum, please ensure the museum is open first.

Such a wealth of knowledge to go with this huge collection of books, scriptures and other really interesting religious items. Really worth a visit as it embraces far more than the religious aspect of the bible. Amazing

I'm in awe of this fascinating collection of Bibles. You can feel the history of the really old, beautifully bound, gold edged collections. The owners are extremely generous to share their passion. And the Butterfly garden is just beautiful! Well worth the visit
