Vatican Museums Night Openings

Again this year the Vatican Museums renew their usual seasonal appointments in the form of the Night Openings. Every Friday evening, until 28 October – except in August – the monumental door of the Pope’s Museums will open at sunset to reveal over a thousand years of treasures in the Vatican Collections.
The cultural and musical accompaniment to enrich the experience of some of the evening openings has also been confirmed.
