Reproduced photographically and beautifully displayed in original size, the ceiling frescoes from the Vatican’s Sistine Chapel will take your breath away. The moments you gaze upon this impressive display can only be called awe-inspiring.

Now is your chance to be able to say “When in Rome, do as the Romans do,” as you walk along the Corinthian’s corridors admiring the 34 reproductions on 16-foot panels. Over a million visitors make the pilgrimage to Rome yearly to see the original up close. Here Houstonians and out-of-town visitors alike will get the chance to soak in every detail and all the stylistic artistry behind each reproduction.

Ticket prices are $20.00 for adults, $15 for those 65 years-old and over, and $15 for 18 and under. What better way to spend those hot summer days than walking among this grandiose replica. It truly immerses you into the creative genius that was Michelangelo and his gifted expression that transcends generations.
