Check Out The National Museum of Funeral History

It may seem morbid to visit a museum about funerals and death, but the National Museum of Funeral History takes a deadpan approach to one of the world's largest customs. Explore the largest collection of funeral artifacts in the United States and learn more about the history of the funeral industry as you explore the museum's many exhibits, including:

The History of Cremation

Cremation is a fairly new process in the United States but the practice has been around even longer. At the History of Cremation exhibit, you'll learn more about cremation, which has quickly become the most popular way to dispose of bodies. Despite its popularity, there are still many misconceptions about cremation, That's why the National Museum of Funeral History has partnered with the Cremation Association of North America to create an exhibit that explores the process of cremation and its history in the United States.

Celebrating the Lives & Deaths of the Popes

Explore the world of Papal funerals at this exhibit. In a collaboration with the Vatican, the National Museum of Funeral History opened this exhibit in 2008 to explore elements of a Catholic funeral and the many stages of preparation to lay a pope to rest. You can also learn more about the process of canonization and how a pope becomes a saint.

Presidential Funerals

This exhibit features an extensive number of artifacts from the funerals of several former presidents. Some of the items on display include the hearse that carried President Ronald Reagan and President Gerald R. Ford, an authentic bill from the funeral of George Washington, and a lock of Abraham Lincoln's hair.

The National Museum of Funeral History is just a short drive from Auburn Lakes. If you're interested in moving to Spring, TX, contact us to learn more about our community and schedule a private tour.
