Washington Christian Heritage Tour: Uncover significant Christian sites in DC including the new Museum of the Bible!
See the breathtaking mosaics and impressive architecture of the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception and tour through the crypt level to see several chapels dedicated to the Virgin Mary. Discover the Saint John Paul II National Shrine and see his blood relic in the chapel there. Explore the moving exhibit, A Gift of Love: The Life of Saint John Paul II. Visit the National Cathedral (the sixth largest cathedral in the world!), which simultaneously tells the Christian and American stories through the art in its interior and its architecture. Lastly, explore the Museum of the Bible, which offers a close look at the stories of the Bible and explains the history of the Bible as The written word.
Fun Fact!: In 1918, President Wilson attended an official Thanksgiving service at the National Cathedral to celebrate the end of the First World War. Wilson had close ties with the National Cathedral and was buried there with his second wife. Today, visitors can see his tomb in the nave of the Cathedral.
