Unlike the real Sistine Chapel in Rome’s Vatican Museums, this exhibit lets you observe this incredible artistic achievement in vivid colour from 4 metres away, as opposed to 20 metres.

“With special expertise and care, the ceiling paintings from the Sistine Chapel have been reproduced in a truly unique way using licensed high definition photos,” the description says.

“Brought to life using a special printing technique that emulates the look and feel of the original paintings, visitors are given a chance to engage with the artwork in ways that were never before possible: seeing every detail, every brushstroke, and every color of the artist’s 34 frescoes.”

There’s also informative signage and audio accompaniment that you can rent so you can learn more about the making of this masterpiece as you explore.
