Visitors to the Vatican Museums have before them some of the finest art collections in the world. It was built up over centuries through the artistic, dynastic and religious ambitions of the popes and has now grown into a museum complex of unrivalled scope and importance. Housed in sections of the huge Vatican Palace and also in wings built specially for the purpose, the Vatican Museums not only display major works of art for every century, they also reflect the ideas and ideals that gave birth to the museums.
