The Vatican Museums (Italian: Musei 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.

Pope Julius II founded the museums in the 16th century. The Sistine Chapel and the Stanze della Segnatura decorated by Raphael are on the visitor route through the Vatican Museums.

As of 2007, they were visited by 4,310,083 people for the year.

Quick Tip by . April 13, 2011
Loved seeing the Sistine Chapel but was disappointed by the lack of respect it's given by the world wide tourists. Our tour guide told us to whisper if we had to talk at all, but when we got inside it was as noisy as a sports bar during a game.

Definitely worth the wait. And if you get there early it isn't bad at all!
