  • A great experience. Having seen the Sistine Chapel in Rome before the restoration and the exhibit today in Halfax I am amazed and impressed. Great pricing, an audio explaination of every painting, no crowds, no time limits. I highly recommend everyone take the opportunity
  • Wonderful. The setup was great. To see the images at life-size was just an unbelievable experience. The colours were breathtaking. The whole experience was so memorable. And the best part is no stiff neck from trying to view it overhead. We highly recommend it.
  • The Sistine Chapel exhibit was absolutely stunning! The audio guide is very helpful. Plan to be there at least 90 minutes as you will want to thoroughly experience this magnificent work.
  • Great atmosphere, and highly informative! To get to see the paintings up close was incredible. I had a great time! I highly recommend the guided add-on. The app worked very well!
  • I have been in the Sistine Chapel three times and was awed with the images . . . but often overwhelmed. This exhibition allows one to appreciate Michelangelo's genius one panel at a time. Ii enjoyed it immensely.
  • Amazing!! The detail in the displays was incredible. Thank you to all the attention and assistance in getting us set up and enjoying the audio.
  • I have visited the Sistine Chapel on various occasions, however, by providing a life-size window, on Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel ceiling frescoes and the Last Judgement, this exhibition gives the viewers an intimate view of the details of the masterpiece. We, in Halifax, are fortunate to have this opportunity and one that will leave a lasting impression on its viewers.
