Pope John Paull II will be canonized on April 27 in Rome. Perhaps, if you are traveling to Italy for the event, this could be a good occasion to visit a little-known museum dedicated to him.

Located in Val D’Aosta, the House Museum John Paul II features images, documents and objects regarding the pontificate of John Paul II.

The collection includes personal objects from the former pontiff’s frequent holidays in the region.

John Paul II was pope from 1978 until his death in 2005. His was the second longest-serving pontificate in history and he is considered one of the most influential leaders of the 20th century.
