Cornerstone laid for John Paul II Museum in boyhood home

Catholic World News - October 06, 2010

Neighboring apartments will be redone to house exhibits documenting John Paul's entire life. The future pope was born Karol Wojtyla in Wadowice in May 1920. He died at the Vatican in April 2005.

Construction has begun for a museum dedicated to Pope John Paul II in his childhood home of Wadowice, Poland.

Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz of Krakow, the longtime secretary to the late Pontiff, and Mayor Ewa Filipiak joined in a ceremony laying the cornerstone for the museum, which will recreate the future Pontiff’s boyhood home and house documents from his entire life and ministry.
