The Museum of Catholic Art and History is now open!

We are now open under our new name at our new location. We are located at 257 E. Broad St., Columbus, OH 43215, on the 1st floor of The Catholic Foundation.

The The Museum of Catholic Art and History was established in 1998 by Fr. Kevin F. Lutz. Its purpose is to preserve the Catholic mind and memory as it is represented in art. The museum embraces liturgical art and secondarily any art that in some way tells the story directly or indirectly of Christ, Mary, the saints, and the history of the Catholic Church.

The museum also embraces art that helps reference Christian history and the congregations of the Reformation. The museum holds in high esteem the Jewish faith and preserves a significant collection of Jewish art and history.

The Museum serves a three-fold purpose:

1. Preservation of our historical patrimony in art, liturgy, music, paintings, statuary, etc.

2. Restoration of artistic and liturgical items to sacred use in the Diocese and as far away as the domestic and foreign missions.

3. Evangelization and education through the teaching power of art depicting the Bible, Christian History, Diocesan History, and the lives of the saints.
