The display originated in Spain, and Milford-area resident, Jose Juan Garrigo, CEO of Immersive Planet, brought it to the United States. It kicks off a 70-city, 20-year tour of the U.S. in Royal Oak.

In addition to the website, there is an excellent Facebook page.

imageThe Expo has been open for a month. A search of Google News lists only one newspaper story, the one in the Observer and Eccentric just yesterday. There was also a story on May 15, in the New Monitor, an in town local Detroit paper. Beyond that I could only find it mentioned on page 3 of the monthly newsletter of the Royal Oak First United Methodist Church, the church that is hosting the exhibition.

Anyone near Detroit please check it out and let us know. Tickets are $18.00; less if you are a student, senior or veteran.

  1. Including “a relic from the Eighteenth Century with a piece of the Shroud, sealed by Pope Benedict XIV (1740-1758).” Check the weave, if you get the chance.

  2. Really!! Where was the news on this? Good grief, seems like quite a nice exhibit that no one knew existed. C’mon people…Field of Dreams is nonsense. Build it and they will NOT come unless they know about it!

    1. It only seems to have been going since April, so I don’t think it’s been the world’s best kept secret for very long.

  3. Yes people have no idea about this/ I live in the Lansing, Mi. area and have heard nothing until my sister happen to catch something about it on Facebook/ We all need to know this exist.

  4. It’s been extended until Oct. 12. Not much time left. Tickets are $10 if you go before 2:00 pm M-F. Headed there this morning.
