The Insiders Course will be a remarkable experience!

It gives Patrons the opportunity to have conversations, ask questions, and even enjoy a cup of coffee with the Vatican Museums’ Directors, Curators, and Restorers.

It also puts Patrons in direct contact with others who feel moved by our mission to preserve, protect, and conserve the Vatican Museums collection. We look forward to growing our global network of Patrons who are true ambassadors of our beautiful Vatican Museums.

We anticipate your enrollment!
