The exhibit, "Dead Sea Scrolls: Life and Faith in Ancient Times," has its final day at The Leonardo on Sunday.
The exhibit, overseen by the Israel Antiquities Authority, features 10 fragments of the Dead Sea Scrolls, the earliest written record of the Bible. The fragments include Bible passages, as well as other religious and scholarly writings going back two millennia.
Since it opened in November, the exhibit has drawn nearly 100,000 visitors — and should cross that threshold this weekend, according to Leonardo officials.
That figure is close to the 100,000-plus who saw the "Mummies of the World" exhibit at The Leonardo last year.
The Leonardo, at 209 E. 500 South in Salt Lake City, is open 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday through Wednesday.
Tickets are $23.95 for adults, free for toddlers 5 and under, $9.95 for children 6 to 11, $14.95 for youth 12 to 17, and $19.95 for seniors, students and military.
