Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains at Lake Junaluska, North Carolina, visitors to the World Methodist Museum will see history come to life as the Museum unveils the story of John Wesley, his family, the formation of Methodism in the eighteenth century, and the Methodist movement’s subsequent global expansion.
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 are housed in the Museum as well as artifacts depicting the field preaching aspect of early Methodism, such as John Wesley's traveling pulpit and Francis Asbury's trunk.
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!
