“Does Purgatory exist?”
Reviewed March 13, 2012

The visit to the Museum of Purgatory was a highlight on my trip to Rome. The Museum in itself is negligible. But the idea of souls in Purgatory is far reaching. It challenges to your mind and soul. How can one prove the existence of Purgatory? And what if there is no such thing? Would that mean that most souls will go straight to Hell?
The church was closed when I first came. But I returned a little after 16:30 and was then let in.

Visited February 2012
