Experience Mary through Exhibits

The Marian Library has two exhibition spaces, the Marian Library Gallery and Crèche Museum. The gallery features rotating exhibits highlighting Marian art, books, archival material and the like. The Crèche Museum features a semi-permanent display of Nativities from the nationally-recognized Crèche Collection and serves as the home to the popular Mirror of Hope installation.


Exhibit spaces are open to the public weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. See our online calendar for additional openings and closings. 


Both exhibition spaces are located in the Marian Library on the seventh floor of Roesch Library on the University of Dayton campus. Directions and Parking Information
