Lot's Museum to open (yes, that Lot)





The JD1.25 million Lot’s Museum at the Dead Sea is expected to open to the public early next year, tourism authorities said on Sunday.

Tourism Ministry Assistant Secretary General Ihab Amarin said construction of the museum has been completed, with work under way to furbish the museum’s exhibits.

“The building is finally ready and we expect the opening at the end of this year or early next year, once the exhibits are ready,” said Amarin.

The museum, located some 300 metres from the cave where Lot and his family are said to have sought refuge from the devastation of Sodom and Gomorrah, has been in the works for more than three years.
