Museum Planet presents a comprehensive narrated digital tour of Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City.

We explain the Cathedral from the outside in. We show and describe the history of the church, the altars and chapels, all the statuary, and each pane of stained glass.

There are biographies of the founder of St. Patrick’s, Archbishop John Hughes, and the Protestant architect James Renwick, Jr. St. Patrick's Cathedral was the Roman Catholic response to Protestant discrimination. It was built to show American that Catholics had arrived and were a force to be reckoned with.

You can stop and start the tour; jump around in it; stop it to read the often extensive text and enlarge all the photos with a ‘swoosh’ of your fingers.

The tour is better than a large and well-researched book. Museum Planet takes you there. 108 photographs, 19.1 minutes of audio, and 10,035 words, plus biographies.

Please take a few minutes to write a review. We appreciate your feedback.
