I saw this museum while I was in Williamsburg, Kentucky visiting Kentucky Splash.

The Carl Williams Cross collection is one of the world’s largest, consisting of over 7,000 pieces collected over a 30 year period, and represents the love and dedication of the late Rev. Robert Williams of Louisville, Kentucky. Rev. Williams focused his ministry on informing people about the origins of the cross and its significance to Christianity. The collection is dedicated to the memory of Rev. Williams’ son, Rev. Carl Williams, a Cumberland College graduate.1
