I, without reservation, recommend the Ink & Blood experience for every museum or institution’s consideration.
The Museum of Idaho was eager to host the Ink & Blood exhibition. Having hosted major traveling exhibits from the Field Museum (T.Rex named Sue), N.A.S.A.’s (Space Journey), Savage Seas (Triebold Paleontology) and Lewis & Clark we felt that Ink & Blood would make a significant historical and cultural contribution to residents of the Intermountain West.
Since the Ink & Blood Grand Opening on February 16th we have been overwhelmed with the numbers of visitors. The compliments, positive comments, and overall appreciation from thousands of visitors have confirmed that this exhibition touches the values and commonalities that we all hold.

Our 154 sixth graders were captivated by the Roman artifacts. The demonstration of the replica Gutenberg Press was a big hit…
Our field trip to the Ink & Blood Exhibit in Knoxville was the most rewarding and worthwhile trip of the year. Our 154 sixth graders were captivated by the Roman artifacts. The demonstration of the replica Gutenberg Press was a big hit with our students…
The tour was excellent and allowed students to easily see and understand the artifacts and information. Your arrangement of the artifacts and displays were very student friendly allowing them to learn independently.
Our Social Studies teacher, Ron Cawood, said, “This is the most impressive display of Roman artifacts I have seen. This has been an invaluable experience for my students.”
My students definitely gained a deep appreciation for the development and importance of printed text. They expressed new respect for written forms of communication and the power of printed words.

It is not to be missed!
I recommend with great enthusiasm that all who can – especially Christians and Jews, but also anyone who appreciates the importance of Western religions – see this once-in-a-lifetime exhibition. It is not to be missed!

We found the exhibit to be very respectful of all of the different faith traditions that claim the Bible as their own.
My wife, a Christian, and I, a Jew, greatly enjoyed Ink & Blood, the exhibit on the history of the Bible which is currently showing in Lexington’s Heritage Hall. We found the exhibit to be very respectful of all of the different faith traditions that claim the Bible as their own. We found that the scholarly, historical approach to the Bible that the exhibit took did not in any way diminish its profound appreciation of the sacrifices that religious people of many faiths have made for their beliefs over the centuries. Thanks for your work in assembling this enlightening exhibit and bringing it to Lexington.
