Entertainment Weekly Consults JMM

wpe01951.gif (243334 bytes)When Entertainment Weekly magazine needed to verify a fact for a news item in the November 3, 2000 issue of their magazine, who did they call? The James Madison Museum!!! Our historian Ken Clark was able to answer their question regarding James Madison's height and even got quoted in the item.  Read the item.

Shame on the writers of the new FOX television show, Boston Public for calling James Madison a midget.

Teddy Bears Wanted

The Christmas Exhibit at the James Madison Museum will feature Teddy Bears this year. We invite anyone who would be willing to lend antique bears, interesting modern bears, or Teddy Bear related items such as posters, books, cards, etc. to bring these items to the Museum no later than November 10, 2000. The exhibit will run from November 30, 2000 through February 15, 2001.

We hope that many of you will want to share your treasured bears with the community for this period of time. If you have a bear or other item to loan please contact the Museum.

Museum Continues Building Improvements

The James Madison Museum has made vast improvements to its museum building. Improvements have included a complete paint job of the Museum interior and exterior, new windows, repairs and paint to the roof, new drainage & guttering systems and an enhanced security & fire detection system.

Stop by and see all the changes. Donations to help us with the next phase are of course always welcome.

Museum Online Gift Shop Expands

The Museum now offers t-shirts, sweat shirts, mugs, mouse pads, in the online gift shop. Items feature a image of James Madison and the Museum name. We have also added both videos and music to our ever growing selections. Shop the Museum's Online Gift Shop often.

The James Madison Museum in association with books continues to grow with new books being listed as they become available. The online bookstore is a popular feature of the Museum's web page. The online bookstore offers many of the same books available from the Museum's Gift Shop plus many other interesting titles. Look for books on James Madison, the Constitution and other books of local interest. If you do not see a book you would be interested in please let us know.
