Capturing the colorful splendor of the ocean, the Lundy-Fetterman Museum and Exhibit Hall is proud to present a new collection of over 250 seashells and small marine life. The shells were a gift to the University from Mr. and Mrs. W. Carroll Bryanand are displayed in beautiful glass cases. The museum boasts a collection of 175 exhibits of animal and marine wildlife. Highlights of the exhibit include a polar bear and mountain goat from Alaska, sheep and goitered gazelle from Iran, and a leopard, zebra, elephant, reedbuck, lion, gnu and rhinoceros from Africa. The museum has now expanded to include the Campbell Heritage Room, which showcases a collection representing the history of Campbell University, and has begun a compilation of all Campbell yearbooks dating from the University's founding. The museum staff invites all to visit the museum in order to help reach its goal of 10,000 visitors by the end of spring semester 2006 and also encourages a visit to the gift shop, which offers a full supply of sweat shirts and t-shirts designed specifically for the museum. The museum and exhibit hall is open Mondays and Tuesdays, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Appointments may be made by calling (910) 814-4398.
