Lonely Planet review

An adjunct for many devotees who visit the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, this modernist-style structure is an unexpected setting for a museum of the Catholic Church. Galleries explore the history of the church, personal faith, and its relation to science, community and social service. At the time of writing, the center was undergoing renovation, with the building open on a limited basis while new exhibits are being developed. The center is about a quarter mile north of the basilica on Harewood Rd.
