Overview

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.

The museum was very organized and personnel well qualified. The question about authenticity if the linen is still unchanged, However the feeling is breathtaking

Whether you are a believer or non believer this museum is well worth the visit. Find out the history and controversial issues regarding the shroud. The cloth is actually housed in the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist in Turin and cannot be viewed unless...More

This is one of those destinations that you should do when in Turin. This is a big piece of history and a very spiritual place.

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.
