The antiquities market is full of fakes.
Private religious "museums" tend to buy the stuff that suits their narrative.
That's true, raphjd. And there's a growing number of religion museums in the U.S.:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Religious_museums_in_the_United_States
A number of these museums examine their religious subjects with some degree of objectivity.
But imho, that new Museum of the Bible in DC is a fine example of a fundamentalist Evangelical family with big bucks, opening a museum designed primarily to proselytize, even if the artifacts are fake and ilegally imported.
Visitors to the hard-line Christian museums also get to hear "fun facts," such as the world is only 6,000 years old, based on adding up the "lineages" found in the OT.
