TheMuseum of Divine Statues held special events in honor of All Souls Day on November 2, 2014. The museum charged half price admission ($4 instead of the regular $8). Our special guest for the day was Father Ronald Wearsch of St. Joseph Parish in Avon, OH. Father Wearsch conducted a Rosary for the visitors to the museum.
In honor of All Souls Day, the museum also offered candles for sale. We offered a one day votive candle, a seven day perpetual candle, inscribed with your loved one’s name, or you could also purchase a month of candles in honor of loved ones and the candles would remain lit from All Souls day until the first Sunday of Advent.
In addition to these special events, you could see the changes we have made at the museum including an enchanting display of Nun Dolls (on loan from the Diocese collection) and our new interactive labels that you can scan by using your smartphone or tablet (or one of our tablets available for rental for $3). We also have touchscreen kiosks that allow you to search the collection and discover more photos and read about the history of the beautiful statuary and the church it came from.
Even if you missed our All Souls celebration for this year, we are always open Sunday from 12:00 - 4:00 pm and very soon we will be decorating for the holiday season.
