Dear Patrons and Friends,
As you know the Vatican Museums reopened to visitors on May 3. This re-opening came after the third closure since the outbreak of the pandemic in Italy in early 2020. With people not able to travel and visit venues and the impact of the loss of a significant volume of international tourism, our team has been working on exciting ways to bring the collections to you – at home, and to show you how much your contribution has meant for the Vatican Museums in the last year.
Through new opportunities to develop online content, learning opportunities, and digital access we have been able to feel closer to you but nothing can really replace meeting you in person and showing you the works of art whose restoration you so generously funded.
That’s why we are incredibly happy to share with you the images of the first Patrons coming back to our Museums.
We are looking forward to more of these visits!
