The World Methodist Museum is a rare find nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Boasting a large selection of Methodist and Wesleyan artifacts, memorabilia, letters and books, it is home to one of the largest collections of artifacts from the early days of Methodism. Despite its remote location, far off the beaten path for most, the museum welcomed visitors from 25 countries and over 32 U.S. states in 2017. A listing can be found below.
A large part of the museum’s ministry is with groups who travel to its location at Lake Junaluska, North Carolina, to learn more about the history of Methodism and is spread around the world. Confirmation groups, Sunday School classes, new church members, candidates for ministry, and history buffs are just some of the visitors who sign the guest book on their arrival at the museum. History comes to life as the story of Methodism unfolds within its walls, and many visitors find that one day is simply not enough to explore all that the museum has to offer.
