  • This is the National Church of venues located in Washington, DC. During the on site a vast Cathedral, Catholic University. Well worth seeing from the viewpoint of art appreciation without religious faith.

  • Perhaps seeing the basilica down the road made me a little jaded, but I didn't find this building all that interesting. Frankly, I think the architecture and decoration of the building is hideous. Oth...  more »

  • I actually started working at the shrine last week and not only was the staff ridiculously warm, welcoming, and professional but the shrin was absolutely magnificent. I love learning new things and I learned so much not only from the shrine but my fantastic co-workers as well. It's a great place to think and reflect be at peace. PLEASE VISIT!!!!!!
  • Really spectacular place. Bought by the Knights of Columbus. My friend that is a Knight wanted to go to noon mass so I joined him. 1st time to mass. Very nice and if Saint John Paul II or the Knights has meaning to you it is well worth the time. Also nice little gift shop, 1st level relic and large exhibit area.
  • Completely transformed from the original JPII Cultural Center. I went w/my husband - we left having felt like we had been on a retreat - a deeply moving experience! We highly recommend making this a part of your DC visit - even if you don't share the Catholic faith - the world should know the remarkable impact even one person can have through being a person of strong character and heroic virtue. We especially recommend for young adults and families (or schools) with teens.
  • Great experience during my visit to the Saint John Paul II shrine. Inspiring exhibits and very helpful staff. Can't wait to return next year at Easter time.
  • A phenomenal hidden treasure. One of the best exhibits I have seen of anything or anyone!
