Wesley hair.

World Methodist Museum

The World Methodist Museum holds an impressive collection of Methodist artifacts. Anyone who has a profound interest in the Methodist Church shouldn't be disappointed. Interesting items include a lock of John Wesley's (the founder of the Methodist church) hair and a horse vertebra painted to resemble John Wesley. There is an enormous amount of busts of John Wesley.

If John Wesley is your man, this your place.

[Jacob Krejci, 08/30/2011]

He is. John Wesley's hair under glass! Not a sacred religious relic. The vertabra calmly assured us so.
