Bible in the Monuments Tour

  • Women desiring to grow in their understanding and appreciation of the Bible, both its application to everyday life and how the Bible as we know it today came to exist.
  • Women who desire to be equipped in the reading of and application of God’s Word to their lives.
  • Women who want to deepen connection within their women’s groups at their church or with female friends or family members.
  • Women who appreciate history and seeing how God has woven his big story of salvation throughout the ages and continues to today.

Yes! You can absolutely attend Lumina on your own, although we believe that the experience will be more meaningful if you are able to share it even with just one or two friends. The ticket price will be higher for individuals or very small groups, but we do offer a group discount if you have at least five women in your group.

The Lumina experience happens all in one day inside the Museum of the Bible.

Choose from an AM or PM event for either day when you register.  This means you’ll either start your day with the conference event in the World Stage Theater, or with your tour guide for your custom tour of the Museum.

Lunch is provided at the Museum and then groups will switch and either go on to the Museum for the custom tour, or up to the Theater for the conference event.

Your day will begin at 8:30 a.m. and will conclude at 6:00 p.m. at the Museum of the Bible in Washington D.C..

Your ticket includes the all-day Lumina event, lunch, a private group tour of the Museum of the Bible, and a one-year individual membership to the Museum of the Bible.

Yes, New Life has secured a special rate of $179/night with the Hyatt DC National Mall for groups attending Lumina on Nov. 3 or 4.

You must reserve your rooms by 10/02/22 to take advantage of this special rate. Rooms can accommodate up to 3-5 people with a sleeper sofa and one or two beds.

Transportation is not included; however there is a Metro stop directly under the Museum of the Bible, so depending on which hotel you are staying in, you may be able to take the Metro to the Museum of the Bible for your private group tour.

While we hope that no obstacles come up that will keep you from experiencing this life-changing event, we also understand that life happens. Since we will be holding multiple Lumina events at the Museum of the Bible in 2023, we can apply your paid ticket to a date that works better for your group next year provided you notify us no later than September 2, 2022. No refunds will be given and if you aren’t able to attend an alternate date in 2023, you can donate your ticket or tickets to another group of women.

Washington, D.C. has an abundance of activities that your group will find fascinating. We recommend returning to the Museum of the Bible to explore exhibits you may not have seen during your private group tour. We can also recommend an intriguing bus tour that highlights where the Bible is hidden in plain sight at historic locations around the city. There are countless other museums, monuments, and shopping options in the area.

Your Lumina ticket includes an individual one-year membership to the Museum of the Bible. You can upgrade your membership to a family membership or purchase tickets for your accompanying family members.

Call us at 877-468-0777 for more information or to register your group.
