Easter Living History features special displays, such as:

  1. An auxiliary military camp with soldiers:
    You’ll discover how the military garrison of Judaea functioned under the Roman governors and why extra troops were needed in Jerusalem during Passover.
  2. A money changers’ table (like the tables Jesus flipped over in the temple in Matthew 21:12–13):
    This display will highlight how the temple tax system and bank worked. Guests will even have the opportunity to change some of their “foreign money” for a replica half-shekel that would have been used to pay the temple tax. Also learn about typical wages and currency exchange.
  3. A baker’s shop:
    Passover is observed during the Feast of Unleavened Bread, so many travelers would need to buy bread. Baker’s shops got busy! See a clay oven at work, and discover how family prep for the Passover meal would have looked.
  4. An optional display on Roman justice and punishment:
    Learn about Roman justice and methods of punishment, including flogging and crucifixion.

Enjoy learning more about Passover in first-century Israel—it will be a very unique experience! Plan your visit at CreationMuseum.org.
