Museum of the Alphabet
Be transported around the world as you visit the Museum of the Alphabet, where displays throughout 12 rooms trace the history of the world’s alphabets, from cuneiform to tonal languages to Native American language syllabaries. Explore other writing systems such as mathematics, music, and Braille. Learn modern stories of communities being transformed through literacy and Bible translation.
Learn how faith, service, and friendship between former Mexican President Lázaro Cárdenas and JAARS founder, Cameron Townsend, paved the way for Bible translation around the world. See examples of outstanding folk art, ancient jewelry, embroidered traditional costumes, Mayan and Aztecan school books, and historical photographs of President Cárdenas.
