    A Dallas museum devoted to biblically-themed artwork that was destroyed by fire in 2005 is set to reopen on Good Friday.

    Museum of Biblical Arts co-director Scott Peck says the museum will be bigger and better than before with 11 galleries in about 32,000 square feet.

    The galleries feature biblical archaeology, religious architecture, European art, African-American and Hispanic art, Jewish art and works by Israeli artists.

    There is also an art restoration lab where visitors can watch conservators restore paintings and other art pieces.

    Peck says even the museum's building is a work of art, designed by Dallas architect Frank Meier.

    Formerly called the Biblical Arts Center, the museum was founded in the mid-1960s by Mattie Caruth Byrd.
