For centuries they lay hidden in clay jars in remote cliff-side caves near the Dead Sea, but now you and your family can see the Dead Sea Scrolls in 10 U.S. cities, including at The Leonardo in Salt Lake City, right now through April 2014. And even if you can't go in person, you'll find amazing ways to be involved from wherever you are at the website at TheLeonardo.org with podcasts of lectures, book clubs and picture books.

In this audio interview, Bryton Sampson, communications specialist at The Leonardo, takes us on a quick tour of the possibilities and what you'll experience at the exhibit. From a 3-ton stone from Jerusalem's Western Wall of the Temple Mount to everyday objects and sections of the actual Dead Sea Scrolls, you'll find plenty to pique your interest.
