The Badè Museum continues the work of William Badè and the former Badè Institute of Biblical Archaeology by engaging in on-going research with the permanent Tell en-Nasbeh collection. Much ongoing research of specific artifacts and object types from the collection is done by museum staff and visiting scholars. This work has led to numerous publications, exhibits, lectures on the collection. Select publications, including those of the Director and original excavation reports, can be see here.


Searching the Collection

The Badè Museum works with Open Context to provide data and archives to the public. Here you can view some of the objects from the Tell en-Nasbeh excavations as well as from projects and excavations all over the world. Our digitization project is ongoing.

The Badè Museum is proud to host visiting researchers wishing to conduct original research on the collections, subject to the Director’s approval. Please see our visiting researcher page for more information on scheduling a visit.
