Interesting exhibit. Very unique experience to be able to see a fairly high quality photo like that up close. The way they tried to make the photos go in numbers but not at all in any coherent answer was annoying. Luckily it was only us and one other couple. This would have not have been enjoyable if crowded.

Expected a recreation of the chapel, with the paintings on the ceiling, but it was good to get an up close look at the frescos.

I had a misperception of how the paintings were going to be displayed. I thought that the paintings on the vault of the Sistine chapel we’re going to be displayed in the same manner, overhead but with a much closer vantage point. The staff person was friendly and helped us get the app needed to listen to the audio tour downloaded to our phones due to no headsets being available.

About Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel Exhibition

Many of the painter Michelangelo's most productive years were spent within the august walls of Rome's Sistine Chapel. There, between the years of 1508-12 and again from 1534-41, the artist, often perched on cramped scaffolding or working prone on his back, created frescos that captivated the minds and spirits of onlookers for the next 500 years. At Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition, curators have recreated these great works as enormous high-definition photos, bringing them down from their closely guarded (and, in some cases, sky-high) walls and ceilings to give guests an up-close look at the master painter's work. Read on to learn more about each piece:

  • Sistine Chapel ceiling: Michelangelo's most complex work stretches across the vast ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, and depicts the stories and scriptural beliefs of the 16th-century Catholic Church. Famous scenes within this multi-paneled work include the Great Flood, the Twelve Prophets, and—most famously—the Creation of Man, which features Adam holding an outstretched finger towards the figure of God himself.
  • The Last Judgment: Located behind the altar of the Sistine Chapel stands this later work, in which Michelangelo captures the scene of the Second Coming of Christ. Angels, saints, and the souls of the faithful fill the wall-sized painting, all surrounding the central figure of Jesus arrayed in a ring of light.
