The branch office in the UK hosted over 300 convention delegates and planned to have them all enjoy a special tour in the British Museum. The delegates were taken on a 2-hour tour by seven tour guides trained by a brother who worked at the museum. These tours continued for about 4 years after the convention.
A series of six self-guided Bible tours of the British Museum that were made available as slim bookmarks to many of the 82,000 convention delegates who attended the Wembley International Convention in London, England. This set of six tours were later used as the basis for two of the tours (Assyria, and Egypt) offered by long serving elders. From the late 60’s congregation groups were taken on weekend Bethel trips to London, the British Museum and the Natural History Museum.
At around the same time, another faithful elder, started presenting many more Bible tours at the British Museum on Saturdays, and the two groups worked closely together for many years. These brothers for a time enjoyed taking the friends tour various lands of biblical interest.
Brothers in USA began Bible tours at the MetArt Museum in New York City, USA and mostly from 2017 in many other museums.
The first usage of the name 'Discover Bible Lands®' was used by brothers in Canada to start private group vacation tours to the bible lands. These bible tours were only for Jehovah's Witnesses from all parts of the globe, on a not-for-profit basis.
The bible lands visited would include countries such as Israel, Egypt, Sinai, Jordan, and Turkey.
