Pretty nice museum, free to get in and to park. A lot of old European artifacts and religious stuff. Pope John Paul is featured in a nice collection here.[Irvin, 07/19/2014]
The Knights of Columbus have their own museum in scenic New Haven, Connecticut, right by the hockey coliseum and the interstate. The Museum honors the Knights and their contribution to American culture, plus the life (and canonization effort) of their founder, Father McGivney. Exhibits include a section on Christopher Columbus, "Catholic navigator and evangelizer," a Papal Gallery, and a room devoted to Father McGivney that includes "relics from his reinterment...revently displayed in the Reliquary."[L.J.
