The Museum of Divine Statues opened April 10, 2011 in the former home of St. Hedwig’s Church. It is the vision of restoration artist, Lou McClung, who was passionate about creating a reflective and reverential space where ecclesiastical statues could be displayed.
His mission to rescue and restore religious statues, many of which came from parishes decommissioned by the Cleveland Catholic Diocese, helps to preserve the history of those churches, as well as traditional Catholic art. Along with statues, you will find other traditional Catholic art and many artifacts on display.
The mission of the museum is to preserve Catholic history by rescuing, restoring and displaying ecclesiastical statues and other sacred artifacts in a reflective and respectful museum setting.
