ACU Museum

 

Operated and maintained by the Women for ACU, the ACU Museum tells the story of Abilene Christian University since its founding in 1906. Housed in a craftsman-style house at 1602 Campus Court, the museum features exhibits depicting the long and colorful history of ACU, and serves as a venue for meetings and social events.

In 2013 WACU inaugurated an internship program to provide ACU history students with valuable curating experience each semester. Named the Mary Manly Internship Program in honor of the longtime museum director and curator, the program allows students to assist with identifying, cataloging, storing and displaying artifacts associated with ACU. The museum's work is dependent on donations, along with the proceeds from a small endowment.
