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.

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.
