Yes, it is very significant for many reasons. And it is an extraordinary creation. But if you are there during busy season, it will be absolutely packed. Packed. Hard to enjoy it.

Looks really great and after spending the day in and around the Vatican we went over to view the museum and Sistine chapel. It was closed! They apparently close at 4pm from Autumn. It wasn't mentioned anywhere around the Vatican and Google have it listed as 6pm closing time. Will have to go another time...

Just a wonderful spectacle of an artists skill that you would not believe possible 600 years ago.. Michelangelo was so inspired to produce such magnificent works, it makes you proud to be a Christian!!! This was all done to the glory of God

The Sistine Chapel is absolutely stunning . Hard to imagine how some this beautiful can be done by one man. Certainly a can't miss when in Rome.

This is a must see when visiting Rome. Absolutely amazing place. Do not let the queues put you off, they look awful when you arrive and I thought we would be hours waiting but it moves very quickly and we were inside in half an hour. So worth the queue as well, totally amazing inside.

The Sistine Chapel (Cappella Sistina) is a chapel in the Apostolic Palace, the official residence of the pope in Vatican City. The Chapel is mostly known from its Papal Enclave, when it is used by the Cardinals to elect a new Pope. It is also famous for its ceiling painting by Michelangelo, which is considered one of the greatest masterpieces... More

You don't get a sense of the height and the size of the Sistine Chapel from books or movies. When you see it in person, makes it so much better. The room is dimly lit to preserve the art, and there's no loud talking and no photographs to help preserve it longer as well.

I think after seeing some truly amazing churches in rome, the sistine chapel was very average i think. the museums are quite nice, and you do get to see some lovely artwork. its not the number 1 thing to do in Rome though.
