At the Last Supper Museum you will see prints, sculptures, carvings, needlework, puzzles, ties and numerous other mediums and objects with a Last Supper picture.
Can you imagine using only the words from John, chapters 13-16, to make a Last Supper picture, taking more than 20 years to complete the Last Supper in mother-of-pearl, carving Christ and the disciples on a walking cane, carving scenes and chalices in olive wood from the Holy Land, designing a picture reflecting the Jamaican culture or the Navajo Indian culture, using volcanic ash or stiffened fabric as an art medium for depicting the Last Supper, or seeing pictures of Leonardo Da Vinci’s 15 by 30 foot Last Supper picture duplicated in mosaic tiles in Germany or made in stained glass in Italy in the early 1900s?
Children and youth preparing for church membership or first communion and their parents/leaders will find a visit especially meaningful. Though open all year, Lent and Easter are great times for visits.
Teachers and leaders of youth groups and confirmation classes will find the museum a great aid in the development of an understanding of Holy Communion or the Eucharist from many aspects: spiritually, artistically, historically, and culturally.
A small souvenir shop has religious items, mostly with depictions of the Last Supper.
The Last Supper Museum is located in Greensburg, Indiana, just off I-74. From the west, use Exit 132. From the east, use Exit 134. More detailed directions will be provided at the time a visit is scheduled.
The museum is wheelchair accessible, has an entrance ramp, and is on one level.
Most groups spend 1 to 3 hours viewing the numerous art pieces of the Last Supper and hearing the related inspirational stories and explanations of the symbolisms included in the art. Participation in Holy Communion is possible if requested when scheduling a visit.
