There’s No Other Museum In America Quite Like This One Near Cleveland

Northeast Ohio hides many spectacular destinations in plain sight. Driving through Lakewood’s Birdtown, you would never guess that one seemingly commonplace church actually houses a museum that’s unlike any other in the nation. Many of its displays come right out of Cleveland, offering you an unrivaled glimpse into the city’s religious past.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!

If these stunning statues had not been rescued and restored by the museum, they likely would have left the area to grace churches out of state. This museum, which is housed at the stunning site of what was once a Polish-speaking parish, preserves a piece of local history in a way that no other museum in the nation has.
