This museum is called Small Museum of the Souls of Purgatory. Around 1897 the French missionary Victor Janet started collecting objects (clothes, fabrics, frocks, skullcaps, breviaries, bibles, nightshirts, small wooden boards, etc.) that were considered to be"branded" by the hands of the dead to prove the afterlife to their living relatives. All the material kept in showcases is exhibited to the publicin a room adjacent to the church of the Sacro Cuore del Suffragio, peculiar example of neo-Gothic construction in 1890 on Lungotevere Prati.
