It's Passover, the Jewish Holiday commemorating the exodus of the Jews from Egypt, escaping slavery. There is limited archeological evidence that this actually happened. Do you think it did?

Not only did it never happen, but there likely never even were any Jewish slaves in Egypt.

There is indeed archeological evidence, including an Egyptian chariot wheel found partially buried in the top surface of the underwater land bridge across the deep Red Sea between Egypt and Saudi Arabia, where the real Mt. Sinai is located.

I think most of it probably happened, but I'm not a biblical literalist. Some details may be inaccurate.

I don't know anything, one way or the other, about the archaeological evidence.

There are as much evidence that the exodus as there was Jesus rising from the dead.

No. There's no evidence it happened.

Limited archeological evidence?

No archeological evidence supporting the Jewish Exodus from Egypt and archeological evidence contradicting the claims.

The Exodus did not happen.

But, this isn't to say there cannot be important cultural and religious observances surrounding the founding myths of the religion, as long as it is understood that these are stories and the lessons take that into account.

Doubtful. None of the examples provided have any real persuasiveness.
