The Teutopolis Monastery Museum, located off Route 40 at 110 South Garrott Street in Teutopolis, will be open to the public Sunday, October 7. The hours are from 12:30 to 4 p.m. Admission for adults is $3 and $1 for children.
There are more than 30 rooms open for viewing in the museum which is housed on the second floor in the former Franciscan Novitiate building at St. Francis Church in Teutopolis. The articles are on display in the "cells" or bedrooms of the Novices.
The tour also includes the Mausoleum and St. Francis Church with stained glass windows which depict highlights in the life of St. Francis of Assisi. Volunteers are stationed at various tour points to explain displays and assist visitors.
