The power of the Bible in America will be put on display in the fall of 2018.

A $60 million attraction with unprecedented technology will open on Independence Mall, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, which is sure to draw loads of tourists.

According to the American Bible Society, once completed, The Faith & Liberty Discovery Center is expected to bring 250,000 visitors annually. It will highlight how from past to present, the Bible has changed those who changed America.

“In the city where William Penn chartered religious freedom, I am excited that the Faith & Liberty Discovery Center will help tell an overlooked story of our history,” said Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney. “This will be a tremendous addition to Philadelphia, and an amazing experience for all our visitors.”

The immersive experience of the Faith & Liberty Discovery Center is being led by the award-winning firm Local Projects, which recently spearheaded the 9/11 Memorial & Museum and ranks as one of the most innovative in the nation.

Architectural design is being led by the Philadelphia principals of SaylorGregg.  When opened, the Faith & Liberty Discovery Center is projected to add over $10 million annually to Philadelphia’s economy.
