Celebrating Lives and Deaths of the Popes

Unknown to me until reading this article, in Houston, there is a museum dedicated to funeral history. One of its Exhibits is Celebrating the Lives and Deaths of the Popes, featuring a Popemobile.

Based on the museum’s claim of being the “only” exhibit of papal artifacts outside the Vatican, it seems to be a permanent installation. While I have seen some similar items, at Vatican Splendors, which is in St. Paul through January 11, the National Museum of Funeral History’s exhibit is focused on the papal funeral experience.

If I was anywhere near Houston, I’d go to the exhibit. If anyone reading this gets a chance to go, please report back in the combox. I’d love to know what you think of the exhibit.
