In the mid-90s, founders Don and Nancy Bassett combined their love of archaeology with their passion for the Bible and formed a unique vision for an independent, non-denominational museum of the Bible. The vision began to take hold through a series of meetings around the kitchen table of founding board member, B’Lou Carter. Subsequent travels to Bible lands and negotiations with institutions like the Louvre in Paris and the British Museum in London led to the acquisition of a fine collection of archaeological artifacts and exact full-sized replicas of major archaeological discoveries from Bible lands. In 1997, the doors of the Biblical Resource Center & Museum were opened in Collierville, Tennessee. Today, visitors come from around the globe to this museum on what Parade Magazine has called “America’s Finest Main Street” on Collierville’s historic town square.
