We stopped in for two hours and really learned a lot! Wonderful tour. We saw artists painting large murals depicting their understanding of Jacob's ladder. That was a surprise! So much to see in such a small museum. They also have a Jewish room that houses an original Chagall. Worth seeing!

This is something everyone should see at least once! They have wonderful stories, articles, and items all backed by history and you can tell they teach their guides well. Best $10 I've ever spent!

Stopped in last week - we had our time wrong - they offered to stay open, but we said we'd be back...next week - unfortunately made the same mistake (they close at 4pm). They remembered us and wouldn't let us leave much to our protest that it's a Friday and they probably have things to do other than accommodate us!... More

Very nice collection of many different items from the Catholic and Jewish faith! Really enjoyed seeing it all and learning new things about being Catholic. Docents were quite knowledgeable. They no longer have a "suggested donation" as it states on website, it is $10 per person.

My friend and I visited here yesterday while trying to visit as many interesting places in Columbus as possible. Of all the things we ended up visiting, we both thought the Jubilee Museum was the best part, and neither of us are Catholic. Father Lutz gave us a private tour with a visiting Father from Ghana, even though it was... More

My friend and I were looking for a museum to visit in Columbus and were very happy that we tried out the Jubilee Museum. Ft. Lutz gave us a very powerful, personal and informative tour for a full two hours during which we learned about both global and local history of Catholicism. As two non-Catholics, we learned a lot. I... More

Awesome experience! Staff was so wonderful and spent so much time answering questions and explaining the Faith. A jewel in the middle of Columbus Ohio-a must see!

A friend recommended I take my in-laws - they LOVED the experience; the guide; his attention to detail and knowledge off the items. The tour covered several floors many rooms artistically laid out with beautiful collections of bibles, crosses, vestments, and so much more. Call to make sure they are open and dress cool during the hot summer months.

I have been here once, but would love to go back again with my family. Fr. Lutz has brought a lot of history and Sacred pieces together. He led us through on a private visit (12-15 people) and has amazing stories and history to offer as you look through. The museum is well organized and exists in an old school.... More

A+ Our adult children were home for Christmas and we are so happy we spent an afternoon at the museum. So much history and the most beautiful collections! We'd love to go back again and again.
