Stop by and see our newest exhibit! Meet the Burdick family through objects, photos, documents and other treasures passed down through generations. This exhibit provides an intimate view of Ma and Pa Burdick, and their three children from their humble daily lives, to WWI France, and a lifetime of Salvation Army service.
Its Derby Day at THQ sports fans! Our special guests, Dr. Sandra Grey and Dr. Mark Turner from Asbury University in Wilmore, KY, were treated to a run for the roses by THQ staff. The race came complete with announcers, fanfare, horses and a blanket of roses for the winning jockey. #funatwork #asburyu
The museum will be closed tomorrow due to inclement weather. ❄️❄️☃️❄️ Please, be careful out there and stay safe!
We are having a great time today hosting Nancy Bassett, past Museum Director from the Biblical Resource Center in Collierville, TN. Nancy is here as part of a Museum Assessment Program Grant that we received from the American Alliance of Museums. The grant provides us with self assessment tools, excellent documentation and resources, and an impartial review by a museum industry peer (that would be Nancy) so that we may develop a good picture and understanding of our operational strengths, areas to improve, and possible areas of growth. We will use these tools to develop a strategic plan, and a museum policy and procedure manual. Thank you, Nancy!
