Pope John Paul II—his life, travels and work—are the main subject here thought temporary exhibitions of church art are often staged as well. Upstairs begins with a map of Papal pilgrimages, moving on to his skull caps, cloaks, amateur paintings, airline schedules, bicycles, and even his canoe. A goalkeeper for local soccer club Cracovia, John Paul was a man of sport too. Gifts from around the world are also on display: Salvers, figurines, and a beautifully hand-painted chess set from the President of Uruguay. There’s also a reconstruction of the room he lived in while working here—the original is in the adjoining Deanery.
