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 exhibition is very interesting: i expected the information to try to convince me that the image had in fact been produced by the body of Jesus. However, I was really interested with all of the scientific facts detailing how it was thought the image...More

Was keen to go to this museum, I'm not religious but find the subject fascinating. The real shroud isn't available to see as it's somewhere else, locked away but this is a good alternative. It isn't an easy location to find and you have to...More

I've read about the shroud a few years ago and was fascinated. The museum tells the story of the shroud and gives a historic overview. The real shroud is kept in the church where people can pray in front of the area.

Being the Holy Shroud in Turin this museum is a must to visit. It will not take long and it is in the Centre. I advise it!

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...More

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.
