Each image is accompanied by informative signage, and audio guides are available to rent for an even more in-depth experience.

  • Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Exhibition well laid out
  • What an amazing insight into the work that went into designing and painting the Sistine Chapel. Inspired to go see the real thing now.
  • Beautiful, good audio guide, not too busy so felt safe. Interesting to hear the background and see the images close up. With explanations. When visiting the actual Sistine, it is impossible to get time to really see any detail. We really enjoyed it!
  • Excellent exhibition, great photos and very interesting and well-informed audio description of the paintings. Very friendly and helpful staff too..
  • Thoroughly enjoyed my visit. Spent 2 hours in exhibit, but it seemed so much less as I was engrossed in viewing and detailed explanations of each painting.
  • As two wheelchair users, we found the experience most accessible and the audio and video provided were excellent. Lots of space and could take the experience at your own pace.
  • Excellent lay-out and very informative.
  • Loved it. Visited the Sistine Chapel when in Rome recently, really enjoyed how much detail the exhibition opens up to you. I would definitely recommend seeing this.
  • Wonderful. So fascinating being able to get up close and in an uncrowded and unhurried way. The audio guide was really interesting, too.
  • Wonderful exhibition. Saw and found out much more about paintings than if I had visited the Sistine Chapel.
  • Enjoyed the exhibition. I'm not into art a great deal but found the video at start interesting and entertaining, the audio for each painting very informative making you look at whole painting rather than just focusing on main character and the size of each painting! And this is the equivalent of their size on the ceiling! A truly magnificent achievement by Michelangelo!! The staff were very good too.
  • Absolutely wonderful a truly beautiful experience
  • So glad I was able to see the Frescos, beautiful. Surroundings were really good and the audio system worked no bother at all. Everybody needs to go and see this exhibition.
  • Fabulous exhibition, stunning recreation of the Sistine Chapel’s incredible works. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
  • What an amazing experience.. took my mother who won't get to see the real thing she was delighted we were there for 2 hours taking everything in in her leisure .. staff were brilliant.. and equipment very easy to use
