TheVatican Museums (ItalianMusei Vaticani), in Viale Vaticano in Rome, inside the Vatican City, are among the greatest museums in the world, since they display works from the immense collection built up by the Roman Catholic Church throughout the centuries including some of the most renowned classical sculptures and most important masterpieces of Renaissance art in the world.

Pope Julius II founded the museums in the early 16th century. The Sistine Chapel with its ceiling decorated by Michelangelo and theStanze della Segnatura decorated by Raphael are on the visitor route through the Vatican Museums. They were visited by 4,310,083 people in the year 2007. The Vatican Museums broke attendance records in 2011 with just over 5 million people.

Previously: The Sistine Chapel

This is by far the best museum I have been to. The non-stop awe you feel as you move through the spaces goes with you afterwards. 


irl-england: v&a
enchantedengland: The Victoria and Albert Museum is kind of like heaven on earth, it’s in London, and it is free!! Free, free, free, not a pee for you or me. The V&A is the world’s largest museum of decorative arts and design, and whether you wish to gawk at Henry VIII’s writing desk or a sculpture by Rodin, your particular passion will undoubtedly be satisfied here. The museum houses a permanent collection of over 4.5 MILLION OBJECTS and that is a whole lot of crap to house, you know.
   The museum covers 12.5 acres and 145 galleries; spanning 5,000 years of art from ancient times to the present day; and you may find it in South Kensington. The image is from the central garden.
