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

I read a review which stated that the area was dodgy and that it wasn't safe to go to by bus. I stayed literally around the corner from this museum, and walked in both daylight and at night in perfect safety. I never thought to...More
According to the church, the shroud is only displayed when the pope visits or a very rare agreed time, to be honest I don't think its advertised which is why I was disappointed to find it covered up. If you are lucky enough... More
According to the church, the shroud is only displayed when the pope visits or a very rare agreed time, to be honest I don't think its advertised which is why I was disappointed to find it covered up. If you are lucky enough there are plenty of hotels in the area that this site should provide.
