Archbishop Fulton Sheen Museum


The Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen Museum is located in the Spalding Pastoral Center. Archbishop Sheen never forgot his Peoria roots and the city and the Diocese of Peoria are proud to host his museum on the same historic campus where he graduated from high school. The Museum is also only one block away from the Cathedral of Saint Mary of the Immaculate Conception, where Sheen attended grade school, learned to serve Mass, and was ordained a priest on Sept. 20, 1919.

The Sheen Museum is maintained by the Archbishop Fulton John Sheen Foundation and is proud to display a wide variety of artifacts from the Archbishop's life which are housed in five collections. These artifacts include writings, books, photos and a selection of his vestments and Episcopal regalia, including an ornate throne donated by Sheen's family.

The Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen Museum is dedicated to maintaining a museum where Sheen's lifework is available for all to see in a single, central location where the artifacts from his life can be safely stored, preserved and shared with the world in a manner worthy of this notable and holy man of God.

If you own any Sheen artifacts or memorabilia, please consider preserving these items by donating or loaning them to the museum. You can also help by making a monetary donation or sponsoring a display. Donations will receive recognition on a memorial wall. To contribute, call 877-71-SHEEN or click here: DONATE
