While visiting Lake Junaluska you can also enjoy a visit to the SEJ Heritage Center and World Methodist Council Museums. The SEJ Heritage Center has an extensive collection of SEJ related artifacts including a large display on the history of Lake Junaluska. The World Methodist Council Museum is internationally renown for having the largest collection of artifacts commemorating the earliest beginnings of the Wesleyan movement.
Both museums are open to group and individual tours and are located near Lake Junaluska’s lodging and meeting facilities. A visit to either is easy and very memorable. Additionally, the Susannah Wesley Garden, located between the World Methodist Council Museum and the Terrace Hotel, is a place for meditation and renewal.
