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.

I went on a school trip in June 2015 and the real shroud was on display, they wouldn't let us take pictures inside but the feeling you get inside the church is indescriptible. Definitely the highlight of our trip, we got tickets prior to our visit and the line was long but it moved quickly. The video they show you... More

The cathedral is free to enter and worth a visit. Inside there is a video providing information about the Turin shroud - very factual and dry but interesting nonetheless. There is an altar which houses the Turin shroud where you can pray or take a seat. We were all quite moved actually, there is certainly a special atmosphere. The bell... More

We all know a carbon dating test showed that the Shroud was probably not really the one used to wrap the body of Jesus Christ our Lord as claimed by some but it's still worth visiting this place if only to know more about the arguments and the controversies. Doesn't really matter whether it is the real thing or not... More

Well hided (and protected) in the church nearby the Royal Palace you can find the Holy shroud,no entrance has to be paid (free entrance). It is one the most historical items from the Catholic Church and it takes only a few moments to visit the museum (in December :-), not sure during the summer months :-).

This museum covers every detail with regards to the shroud which allegedly belonged to Jesus Christ. The tour starts with a 15 minute video clip on the finding of the shroud while also explaining each part of the shroud in detail. After that, there are two rooms to explore freely. The second room contained various artwork on the shroud. The... More

We drove all the way north from alassio and it was well worth the visit. The ladies in charge were charming and we allowed to take it all in. Parking iis on the street and you will need plenty of change. There is a café on the corner of the block that does honest caffeine.

This was high on our list of places to see in Turin. This is one of the most celebrated and venerated artefacts in the World. We did our research and appreciated that we would not be able to see the real thing. We didn't know what to expect but thought it would be more impressive than it was. It's accepted... More

The original Shroud is, understandably, kept in a vault to protect it. It is easy to walk around the exhibit to understand the steps taken to know what the Shroud can reveal.

I have been looking forward to see the shroud for at least 30 years. And the disappointment was great when I finally entered the chapel. There is a nice video and that is it. The face of our lord Jesus is blown up on a picture and that is it. I am so glad that the rest of Turin is... More

We were dubious about going, but thought we ought to as the Shroud is so well known (& yes, we did know that it wasn't on display). You start with a film describing what it is and what it represents and then go to a very good, small, museum level to see a number of items connected with it -... More
