The Vatican Museums are art museums located within the city boundaries of the Vatican City. They display masterpieces of painting, sculptures and other works of art collected by Popes throughout the centuries.
You can visit the Vatican Museums year-round. But the busiest time of the year in Rome is from mid-March until early November. From mid-November to early March (except Christmas and New Year) there are no lines and crowds in front of Vatican Museums.
The Vatican Museums are open Monday to Saturday from 9:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. On Sundays and Catholic holidays the Museums are closed for visitors.
