World Methodist Council Museum

Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains at Lake Junaluska, North Carolina, the World Methodist Museum is home to one of the largest collections of artifacts from the early days of Methodism. History comes to life as the story of Methodism unfolds within the walls of the Museum. 

Inside the Museum

Beautiful windows depicting Jesus Christ and John Wesley, portraits of early founders of Methodism, the world’s largest collection of Wesleyan Staffordshire pottery, a library containing rare books, manuscripts and autographs all provide inspiration from the past. Ten portraits by Frank O. Salisbury hang in the Museum and a very rare Parian figure of John Wesley at his mother’s tomb is on exhibit.

The World Methodist Museum is a must-see for Confirmation, Youth, Bible Study, and Church groups. History enthusiasts will also be amazed at this jewel in the mountains!
