Papal exhibit coming to local museum

The Houston Business Journal reports that Houston will be hosting a unique papal exhibit later this month:

Houston’s National Museum of Funeral History will host the world’s first papal exhibit outside of the Vatican on Nov. 25.

The 5,000-square-foot exhibit, “Celebrating the Lives and Deaths of a Pope,” features the rituals by which popes have been elected and buried over the last 2,000 years.

The exhibit is part of a three-year collaboration between the Vatican and the not-for-profit National Museum of Funeral History, a collector of funeral memorabilia located at 415 Barren Springs Dr.

I have to admit that my sense of the macabre led me to our Museum of Funeral History years ago. It's worth the trip.

And the first papal exhibit outside of the Vatican? That almost sounds world class!
