FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - The Catholic Diocese of Fort Wayne - South Bend has a new museum.

Bishop Kevin Rhoades blessed the museum during a ceremony Tuesday afternoon.

The museum is in the old Chancery next to the Cathedral.

The new space allows for more artifacts to be on display.

Bishop Rhoades said hopefully the new location will also attract more visitors.

"It is truly part of the history of Fort Wayne. It's not just a museum for Catholics to visit, but for anyone who's interested in history," Rhoades said.

The museum is open 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

It is free to get in, but the diocese does take donations to help offset operating costs.
