Washington D.C.’s new Museum of the Bible will show guests the archaeology of Israel. Here you are encouraged to touch all the artifacts, including a stone from the Roman destruction of the Jewish Temple, reports CBN News.

For centuries, people have traveled from around the world to Jerusalem to pray at the Western Wall. Now, one of these stones, from the Roman destruction of the Jewish Temple made the journey to the U.S. to be part of the new Museum of the Bible.

"We have actually a label [that says] 'Touch Me' because we think people would like to see and feel the connection between being in the States and touching a stone from Jerusalem from the first century BC," Ben Ami told CBN News.

There are some 800 artifacts on permanent exhibit, all excavated in Israel.
