The fascinating history of  the Shroud of Turin is explored in an exhibition which opens at Knock Museum on Tuesday of Holy Week, 31 March. The exhibition consists of a full-size colour photographic replica of the world-famous Shroud of Turin which many Christians believe is the cloth in which Jesus of Nazareth was wrapped and buried following his death. The exhibition also includes original Roman nails, a replica whip and spear and information about the latest research on the Shroud. This exhibition has travelled widely and it is very fitting that it opens at Knock Museum during Holy Week as it traces the journey of Jesus from his trial through the events of Good Friday to the empty tomb.

The exhibition will be officially opened on Tuesday 31 March at 11 am by Pam Moon, Project Co-ordinator. Pam has been researching the Shroud for over thirty years and will share some of her amazing findings at the official opening. All are welcome to attend.

The exhibition will run at Knock Museum daily from 10-6pm from 31 March – 26 April
