If you are in New Haven,do visit this museum. YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED.
  • amazing place. staffs are all friendly, very clean and wonderful restroom, gift shop has variety from prayer book to holy gift. most of all wonderful educational opportunity to Catholics about amazing kife about Fr. M McGivney.
  • A great little free museum for people who are interested in religion (even if you're not Catholic). I happily spent two hours there learning about the Knights and their work over the century.
  • You may never have thought to visit this museum as you may not be a Knight or Catholic. However, there are some great displays for WWII buffs and a beautiful 9/11 memorial. Overall, it's very well done.
  • Unexpected museum to visit especially during the holidays with the Christmas exhibits. We go annually to see manger displays from around the world.
