To look at this shroud and see how badly damaged Jesus was is so very sad. The shroud displayed is a copy of course. However the information given is very detailed and thoroughly laid out. Worth a visit! Museum workers are very kind.

The museum is small but well worth the visit. It will take at least an hour to review all the artifacts and view a short film about the Shroud. Do note the original shroud is not here but there is a full-sized replica on display.
