  • Lots of fun! The images caprured on the sistine chapel's were beautiful and captivating. The audio sets which explained the the stories behind every image well. The image of Micehlangelo's last judgment is sublime. There arecatories behind many of the individual's Micehlangelo painted in the last judgment. The images of the prophets and the sibyl are there as well. The venue is air conditioned and comfortable. There is seating. It's a very enjoyable exhibit.
  • This was an amazing experience. I highly would recommend for everyone to check it out.
  • Great Date night! It was neat to see the map of the frescos on the ceiling next to each of the displays. Quite informative.
  • Was awesome. Was kind of hard to understand. But then I realized that it was laid out a certain way.. .would have been nice if that was explained in the beginning. I loved the overall experience
  • It was marvelous. Felt like you were a part of history and the spiritual reality of that time. I could feel what he was was expressing.
  • It was a lot better than I expected. The opportunity to see these paintings so much closer than the real thing was gratifying, and it seems that no detail was lost in the enlargements. The narratives were loaded with detail. I would have stayed even longer but the people I was with got bored and wanted to go eat.
  • We ended up spending almost 3 hours there. It was self paced and very calm. The listening devices really helped set the atmosphere and were clear. If you didn't want to listen to it you could simply read each piece. I loved the beginning historical background video. Thank you It was most enjoyable
  • The exhibit was wonderful. My experience was impacted by the person accompanying me. She was anxious to move on to lunch. I wanted to spend more time viewing the pics. I will return alone to enjoy it more thoroughly. Also, I wanted to buy a T-shirt but there was none above size L in inventory. Very disappointed. Hopefully the inventory will be corrected to include larger sizes!
  • Thoroughly enjoyed the tour audio explaining each section. Not over crowded - this made it easy to stroll through the display at my pace.
  • It was a great experience going to see each painting one at a time, with audio explanations. I highly recommend seeing this exhibit.
  • The exhibit was wonderful and informative! I have been to the Sistine Chapel, but this exhibit allowed me to see it a way you can’t when you’re there. The only complaint I have is I couldn’t buy a regular adult ticket and a senior ticket at the same time.
  • Very interesting! Our entire family is glad we spent the time and money to go! Well worth it.
  • The exhibit was great, very informational. The room could have been darkened a bit more and made to feel a bit more ornate to go with the display but overall very good.
  • Well done exhibition!! Highly recommend!! I’ve been to the real Sistine Chapel but didn’t get to learn the history behind each picture. Loved learning the Biblical history behind each picture.
  • It would have been nice to have arrows or numbers directing us in terms of what order to view the images in. But overall great information and a wonderful exhibit!
