The collections of the Badè Museum of Biblical Archaeology are rich in history, both ancient and modern. Spanning a period of some 3,000 years, the museum holds a phenomenal array of everyday artifacts such as cooking pots, grinding stones, lamps, and agricultural implements from ancient Palestine along with colorful Greek and Cypriot ceramics, scarabs from Egypt, and cuneiform tablets from ancient Mesopotamia.

The Badè Museum of Biblical Archaeology has been an integral part of Pacific School of Religion since the time the Museum was conceived. The core of the Museum collection consists of materials from the site of Tell en-Nasbeh, excavated under the direction of William F. Badè. Dr. Badè’s work at Tell en-Nasbeh represents one of the earliest scientific excavations in Palestine.

The mission of the Badè Museum is to foster a greater understanding of and appreciation for the ancient biblical world through the preservation, research, interpretation, and presentation of artifacts recovered by the Museum’s founder, William F. Badè.
