To be honest, we were very careful not to overdo churches on our trip to Italy. Just a few select ones to keep it special. When we read about this in the Atlas Obscura, we knew it was right up our alley. As luck would have it, it was one of the only attractions right on the same street as our hotel.
It's lovely inside; very serene. You have to go through the doors near the alter to find the "museum" part. I say "museum" because a display case or two doesn't usually warrant museum status. The priest that put the collection together was somewhat obsessed with the idea that things damaged by fire somehow equate to purgatory. If you like oddball things (like I do), it's worth a quiet little visit.
