Museum of the Holy Shroud
This museum is located in the heart of Turin, on Via San Domenico 28, and offers complete information on sindonologic research from 1500 to the present day, capturing the historical, scientific, devotional and artistic aspects. Among the exhibits: the 1931 G. Enrie’s plates, the box in which the Shroud arrived in Turin in 1578, engravings and ancient books dated from 1500 to 1800, three-dimensional pictures, electronic photomicrographs illustrating pollen grains, micro traces and canvas, which are the result of experiments aimed at explaining the image. The jewel of the museum is the sixteenth-century shrine, made of silver and gems, which kept the Shroud until 1998. The visit is enlivened by a series of virtual frescoes of the Passion changing slowly but continuously, which are projected on the vault of the crypt. Before the visit, a DVD in five languages will offer you the interpretation of the Shroud.
