St Peter's Basilica & Vatican Museums Ferragosto

Hi there,

Can anyone tell me if St. Peter's and the Vatican Museums will be open as usual on Thursday 15th August 2013 (Ferragosto), if so, what would be the opening times, I have a feeling the Museums might be closed but am not sure. Would there be special services in St. Peter's?.

Thanks

On Musei Vaticani website, they say they are closed on august the 14th and 15th...I can't find anything about St Peter, it is a religious holiday in Italy...

The Vatican Museums are always closed on religious feast days, and the 15th is the Feast of the Assumption. I'm not sure why they're closed on the 14th.

St. Peter's Basilica is open both days, with masses on the Sunday and holy days schedule on the 15th.
