A Museum to Visit

This article highlights a New York museum, the Living Torah Museum, that I would like to visit at some point. The museum contains a walk-in replica of the biblical Tabernacle, an intact three-handled clay wine storage jug purportedly used by Judean soldiers from the reign of Hezekiah, and an ivory seal, with the bird-image imprimatur as well as the name of King Ahab. Since this is a private collection, provenance might be an issue for some of the items. But it would be interesting to see nonetheless. The museum's website allows you to take a virtual tour of some of the artifacts. Have any of my readers been to this museum?
