The Eternal Nation Museum in Hixson tells the story of Israel and the Jewish faith
CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – This is a facility that is located just off Highway 153 and Hamil Road in Hixson. It has been here since 2019. It is called the “Eternal Nation Museum”. Many people may not realize it’s even here. But yes, it is a museum.
It is a museum that takes you through the history of Israel. And the biblical history of the Jewish faith.
BRAD BLANTON, MUSEUM TOUR GUIDE;
“As far as we know, we are unique when it comes to museums in the region. Because we are dealing with Jewish and biblical history. I don’t know of any other Holocaust museum here in our area.
Of all the sections of this museum, the section dealing with the Holocaust is the most important. And it seems to be the most popular.
Brad Blanton says visitors to the Holocaust exhibit seem grateful for the artifacts. And that’s a deep meaning.
“People seem to be moved by this. The other day I went to see people and see if they had any questions. They were sitting in the section. And they were almost in tears. They were just overwhelmed with what was happening.
The museum is also used as an educational tool for students. For example, showing the common ground between Christianity and Judaism.
Ed Frampton has been the president of the museum for 16 years. He is proud of his quality.
ED FRAMPTON, PRESIDENT OF THE MUSEUM;
“I visited many other museums. I have been to Israel. Although it may not be the size of others, the quality of our museum is on par with other museums.
The museum is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday to Friday. Closed on public holidays and weekends. Visit their website to find out more.
