Photos from the Knights of Columbus Museum in New Haven, CT in October, 2004

These photos are from the Creating St. Peter's exhibition at the Knights of Columbus Museum in New Haven, CT. They had Michelangelo's original model of the cupola (dome) of St. Peter's Basilica there but they didn't allow photographs of it.
