Located in the Northern part of DC, Pope John Paul II Cultural Center is a $65 million museum. Its inauguration ceremony was attended by President George W. Bush as well as the Governor of Vatican City. The center ironically presents solemn spirituality and high-tech entertainment. It encourages visitors to explore faith and also assists them in addressing its challenges. There is an art museum, which features several art exhibits on a regular basis. Also involved in research, the center attracts half a million people a year. Record your ‘testimony of faith,' on a computer, on paper or on videotape. Read ancient scriptures or research saints on the Internet. Or simply listen to papal speeches and hymns, which are available in 75 different languages.
