Overview

This Museum provides information on just about everything related to the Holy Shroud of Turin, the winding sheet that might have been folded around the body of Jesus Christ after the crucifixion, telling its story and describing the research that has investigated the famous cerement over the centuries, starting from 1500. The most precious piece on display in the Museum is the silver reliquary, where the Shroud was stored until 1998. Nowadays the Shroud is kept in a special bulletproof glass vacuum case in a Chapel inside the Cathedral. The event of the year for Turin will be the special Exhibition of the Shroud from April 10th to May 23rd. Two millions pilgrims are expected to visit it in the specially setup chapel inside Palazzo Chiablese, next to the Cathedral. -Maria Frullini
