About this Exhibition

Discover the fascinating history of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and be transported to Jerusalem for an immersive 3-D experience unlike anything you’ve seen in a museum before. Your groups will be able to virtually visit the church and learn about its storied history and enduring mysteries.

Built in the fourth century, the tomb of Christ, or the Holy Edicule, has just undergone a historic restoration—a project that captured the attention of the world and will be featured this fall in National Geographic magazine and on the National Geographic channel. In the exhibition, learn about the restoration effort and how National Geographic Explorers are using new technologies including lidar, sonar, laser scanning, and thermal imaging to continue to study this important site.
