Our Museum houses a comprehensive collection of historic artifacts and unique artworks related to the Shroud of Turin. Our collection highlights the various ways the Shroud has been examined, studied, exhibited, and venerated across the centuries, and appeals to the religious pilgrim or curious scholar.

The hundreds of remarkable artworks, books, manuscripts, photographs, engravings, embroideries, statues, oil paintings, stamps, coins and medals have been collected across nearly six decades and make up one of the largest collections of Shroud artifacts and memorabilia known to exist in the world. In addition, there are many precious sacred relics, including those of the Holy Shroud itself.

The library collection consists of more than 1,000 titles of books, periodicals, journals, documents, etc. The oldest book in the collection dates to 1581.

All are welcome to the Grand Opening, at its temporary location next to the Cathedral, until the new museum is built. This exhibit will feature many of the finest objects of the collection.
