The Museum of the Bible has announced that its newest exhibit will be a tribute to the late evangelist Billy Graham.

The exhibit, “Pilgrim Preacher: Billy Graham, the Bible, and the Challenges of the Modern World,” will be open to the public on Aug. 5.

Set on the fifth floor of the building, the exhibit will be on display through Jan. 27, 2019.

The museum collaborated with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association for the display which will feature a “historical examination of the life, work and cultural significance of William Franklin “Billy” Graham Jr. (1918–2018),” a statement released Monday by the museum said.

Graham died on Feb. 21 at his home in Montreat, North Carolina, at age 99.

The exhibit will be divided into two sections. “The first will examine the development of Graham into a global revivalist, starting with his roots in the American revival tradition and the postwar context of his early ministry, and the second will explore the impact of his work in the realms of religion, society and politics,” the museum said in its statement.

Some key features visitors will experience include the first and last pulpit Graham preached from during his first major crusade in Modesto, California, in 1948, and final crusade in New York City in 2005. The exhibit will also feature sermon notes, Graham’s personal Bibles and those owned by his mother, Morrow, and his father, Frank.
