"Vatican Museum" Vatican Museums Tip by AlexDJ

Vatican Museums, Rome: 157 reviews and 373 photos


The Vatican Museums are one of the most famous and renowned cultural institutions of the Vatican State. They are known everywhere because of the masterpieces which are collected and preserved here during the ages. The Vatican Museums include the most important and artistically significant rooms of the Vatican Apostolic Palace, such as the “Cappella Niccolina” with paintings by Beato Angelico, the “Appartamento Borgia” with decorations by Pinturicchio, the “Stanze” painted by Raphael and, of course, the Sistine Chapel with frescoes by Michelangelo as well as the most important 15th century masters from Umbria and Tuscany.
Prepare yourself to wait for a long time before reaching the entrance, because normally people queue up to 1Km! The last sunday of each month the entrance is free of charge.
