Archbishop Fulton Sheen Museum


Please click on "Contact Us" for hours.

The Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen Museum closely cooperates with the Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen Foundation and the Diocesan Museum and archives.  Fulton Sheen never forgot his Peoria roots and his home diocese.  His museum is located in the Spalding Pastoral Center on the same historic campus where he graduated from the Cathedral grade school and Spalding High School.  Only one block away stands the Cathedral of St. Mary of the Immaculate Conception, where young Fulton Sheen learned to serve Mass and was ordained a priest on September 20, 1919.  

The Sheen Museum is maintained by the Archbishop Fulton John Sheen Foundation and with pride displays a wide variety of artifacts from the Archbishop's life which are housed in several collections. The exhibit includes writings, books, photos, a selection of his vestments and Episcopal regalia, and many other artifacts displayed through the generosity of various donors.

“I must not be ashamed if I am fearful and if my whole being shrinks in dread. What I must fear is my unwillingness to fulfill the will of God as revealed by the present circumstances of life. Not my will but Thine be done.” Archbishop Fulton Sheen (Wartime Prayer Book)
