Shroud Exhibit and Museum

Shroud of Turin and New Mexico history. Life-size Shroud scientific-grade photo. Plan on spending 1 to 2 hours to hear a personal story about verifying the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin, from one who participated in the 1977 scientific expedition.

[Kirk Ehnisz, 03/27/2023]

New Mexico hosted a conference on research into the Shroud in 1977. That was a long time ago, but not as long ago as the appearance of the Shroud, which is purported to have been wrapped around Jesus.
