The Vatican Museums, founded by Pope Julius II in the 16th century, house one of the largest and greatest art collections in the world.

Inside are vast collections of works of art accumulated over the centuries by the popes.

The Sistine Chapel frescoed by Michelangelo is only part of the works that visitors can admire.

The Vatican Museums are located in the Vatican territory but the entrance is on Italian soil, in Rome.

The Museums have an average annual turnout of about six and a half million visitors.

To skip the long queues and save time, we recommend purchasing an online ticket which allows priority entrance.
