Overview
More
The museum shows a complete set of information about Shroud’s researches from ‘500 till now , gathering historical,scientific, devoutness and artistic aspects. A part of the museum presents scientific explorations of the shroud from 1898 to present. A second section is dedicated to the history ( believed as well as recorded ) of the Holy Shroud and its worship, starting from the second half of 15th century, when the Sheet became a property of Savoy family. In the photo graphical section a full set of official pictures of Shroud is shown. From first pictures taken by Secondo Pia in 1898, to the high definition digital pictures rom Hal9000 of 2008. Before visit a 5 languages video helps to understand shroud’s contents. The Museum has a path for blind. It is also available a panel that provides the Shroud in a coded form. For the first time a blind can indeed feel the same emotions that anyone feels the presence of the Shroud.

Can be hard to locate - don't expect a large, well-marked museum. We arrived before the small museum re-opened from lunch and there was little to indicate that we were in the correct spot. A small plaque seemed to indicate that they would re-open at...More

I've read about the shroud a few years ago and was fascinated. The museum tells the story of the shroud and gives a historic overview. The real shroud is kept in the church where people can pray in front of the area.

Hope. No you cannot see the real shroud at the museum. I'm not sure which church it is housed in but again it cannot be seen. It is only on view every so often and there's an announcement.
