Overview

Non-profit 501-c-3 NM corporation formed to educate the public concerning the Shroud of Turin and the connection to New Mexico history through the world's largest scientific expedition ever launched to study a single artifact, which began in NM because of a proof developed in NM in 1976. Our mission is to make the Shroud of Turin an experience available to everyone through facts, exhibits and research. The exhibit features a full-size color scientific grade image of the Shroud and the only interactive 3D exhibit using a VP-8 Image analyzer, as well as recent 3D works by Dr. Petrus Soons. OPEN BY APPOINTMENT. MULTILINGUAL EXHIBITS.

Thank you for the review of the Space museum. I hope you had an equally good time at the Shroud Exhibit and Museum, although I am sure their gift shop and multiple levels are a much more expansive museum experience. We enjoyed having your family...More
