Visiting Bibleworld

Bibleworld is a great place for adults and children to explore what life was like in Biblical times. Bibleworld has a range of detailed scale models, ancient artifacts from Bible times and a variety of 'hands on' activities.


Free Entry 

(Donations appreciated)

We suggest you allow 1 - 2 hours for a visit for adults; 45 minutes to 1 hour for children visiting Bibleworld.

Due to the interactive nature of Bibleworld, it is important that young children are supervised at all times. Please ensure that you have sufficient adults to supervise any children that you bring to Bibleworld, and to enable the adults to take turns looking at the exhibits that interest them.
