Passages-1“Passages,” one of the world’s largest private collections of biblical artifacts, is coming Friday, April 3 to the Santa Clarita Valley.

“We were looking for somewhere to have a strong market for the exhibit,” said Jennifer Atwood, who’s the Museum of the Bible curator. “Santa Clarita is one of the largest markets in the L.A. area and it has everything we need for the exhibit.”

Santa Clarita is the sixth U.S. city to host “Passages,” and the first city on the West Coast to host the exhibit.

Passages is a 30,000-square-foot, interactive exhibit presented by Museum of the Bible that chronicles the remarkable history of the Bible, from its transmission and translation to its impact and controversies.

“‘Passages’ is intended for all faiths and interests,” Atwood said. “There’s something for everybody to find interesting, even people with no faith backgrounds can find interest as well.”

Museum of the Bible isn’t directly affiliated with the arts and craft store Hobby Lobby, which is scheduled to open at the same location as ‘Passages’ in 2017, but they are part of their donations and ministry projects.

Hobby Lobby originally planned to open this year at the old Office Max location in the Bouquet Canyon Shopping Center, but the opening has been pushed back for reasons that are unclear.

Hobby Lobby had to delay its opening due to a non-compete clause with Michaels that expires in 2017, according to sources. Passages and Hobby Lobby wouldn’t comment on this report.

Hobby Lobby is keeping its lease on the location for the time being, and when the store comes to Santa Clarita, it will be at the planned location.

Many of the artifacts featured in Passages will be part of the recently announced Museum of the Bible, slated to open in Washington D.C. in 2017.

Called “a sampler of Jewish, Roman Catholic and Protestant treasures” by USA Today, Passages features some 400 artifacts from one of the world’s largest private collections of rare biblical texts and artifacts.

The Passages exhibit will be here in Santa Clarita till February 27, 2016, located at 26565 Bouquet Canyon Road.

For more information on Passages you can call at 1-888-297-8011 or visit their website.

  1. I think the writer meant the old OSH space. Oops!

  2. It’s in old OSH but soon to be Hobby Lobby.

  3. It was so good! Everyone should go!

  4. Laura Oswald Dangelo

  5. Wouldn’t “free” help spread the word more effectively? Or maybe the motive isn’t holy…..

  6. Emily Ball says:

    I think the place should be picketed. I know it is not Hobby Lobby, but the supporters seem to share many core values with the Hobby Lobby owners (anti-equality, anti-science, anti-living wage

  7. Prices are a bit steep

  8. Heather Yarnell MacIsaac

  9. Carol Hulse this will be open when you are here and it’s just down the street from my house.

  10. Jeanne says:

    Hobby Lobby provides excellent pay (more than industry standards) and benefits and a wonderful working environment. They do not discriminate against anyone. They do hold to traditional Christian values which most Americans do also.

    Emily Ball is the one who is discriminating against Christians.

  11. Carol Hulse Carol Hulse says:

    Papa and I want to see it!
