We enjoyed a very engaging tour during our visit to the museum, including a delightful demonstration of an old funeral parlor organ by the museum director, Shawn. The current LEGO model of St Peter’s is fascinating. So many unexpected gems to see here!

We had a guided tour with the founder of the museum and we're amazed by his depth of knowledge and the Museum's collection. We are non Catholics and it was still incredibly enjoyable.

The museum is a unique experience. The art spans 500 years. There are collections of vestments, Bibles, musical instruments, statuary, paintings, Stainglass windows. The building itself is interesting-it is a large, old school. There are many treasures to be found within. I have been to...More

When you arrive here, seniors especially, be mindful of your surroundings and make sure your car doors are locked. This is not a safe area. A soup kitchen occupies part of this museum building, so there will likely be vagrants wandering about. The exit off...More

Do not judge the book by its cover. This saying is so appropriate for this place. A very unassuming building in an unassuming place, this Museum contains invaluable treasures of the Catholic Church. The Museum is located next to a soup kitchen. Homeless people come...More
