The little church has amazing architecture and while it is famous for hosting the questionable shrine of Jesus, I think the reconstruction of the building itself is what is amazing. Before you enter, there is a video showing what happened during the fire and how...More

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.

Interesting museum which allows you to keep an open mind. They concentrate on the science and history rather than the religion which makes it better. It's very reasonably priced and there are audio guides in English if needed. It starts with a seven minute long...More
