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
