Traveling Exhibits

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 the exhibit reservation page.

The following displays consist of mounted images and captions 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.

You may also order a printed and mounted copy of any of our Print-on-Demand exhibits, available as stand-alone, mounted panels up to 16 x 24 inches.
