At the Last Supper Museum you will see prints, sculptures, carvings, needlework, puzzles, ties and numerous other mediums and objects with that iconic Last Supper picture. Kids can learn about history, the Bible, and of course, the wonderful world of art.
Suited more for the older kids, the Last Supper Museum allows the family to explore the words of the Bible, as well as appreciate how the Last Supper picture took more than 20 years to complete in mother-of-pearl.
Even kids who love art can look closely at how they would have carved Christ and the disciples on a walking cane, carving scenes and chalices in olive wood from the Holy Land.
How do you think they would have gone about 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?
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.
