CINCINNATI (AP) — Increasing numbers of people wanting to view the Dead Sea Scrolls exhibit at an Ohio museum have led to extended viewing hours this weekend as the exhibit begins its final week.
The Cincinnati Museum Center exhibit does not release specific exhibition attendance numbers. But officials say tickets have been selling out for time slots for the exhibit that closes April 14.
The scrolls include the earliest known surviving manuscripts of text included in the Hebrew Bible. The Ten Commandments scroll was recently added to the exhibit, which also features 10 other scroll fragments from Israel.
Hours this Saturday will be extended to midnight, with the last entry at 10 p.m. Sunday's hours have been extended to 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., with 7 p.m. as the last entry time.
