The Presbyterian Historical Society offers free traveling exhibits for use at special events held by all levels of the church. For ordering information and to reserve an exhibit, visit our exhibit reservation page.

Our traveling exhibits are available in two forms:

  • The following displays consist of images and captions, mounted on board, with Velcro backings for arrangement on felt boards (included in exhibit package). Each display stands on its own and is approximately 2 feet high, 2 feet deep, and up to 4 feet in width. We suggest using either half of a 6 foot table or a square table that allows room to lay out the accompanying brochures and other materials.

  • In addition, all of our Print on Demand exhibits are available for order as traveling exhibits.
