Home to some of the world’s most iconic paintings, the Vatican Museums attract huge crowds. Save yourself hours of waiting by booking this skip-the-line tour of the Sistine Chapel, Raphael’s Rooms, and St. Peter’s Basilica (when the option is selected) in Rome. Early morning and evening tour options mean you can explore the complex during far less crowded time slots. Upgrade to a small-group tour limited to 10 people for a more personalized experience.

I was really excited to visit this museum. I knew the opening hours were supposed to be limited to Mon, Wed, Fri from 10-12, and that it could be tricky to find in the Hospitale Santu Spiritu complex. I found it no problem but it wasn't open. A passerby told me it is "never, never"open, but since I don't speak the language well I couldn't any more information. There are lots of telephone #s on the web for this museum; one rings and no one answers, the rest are wrong numbers. The email address I found online bounced back. A Roman I met said that he heard a few months ago they were doing renovations, and maybe it was closed for that. So...don't get your hopes up.

My husband and I visited this museum on a second trip to Rome. I had read about it and since we both work in health care, we were both very excited to visit this museum with so many fabulous relics. Figuring out how to access the museum proved a bit tricky since it was hard to find much in english and some of the information was conflicting regarding open hours and need for reservations. Bottom line, you do not need a reservation if you visit on Monday, Wednesday or Friday between 10-12. They were also closed the month of august i believe. It is located in the complex of the Santo Spirito hospital. When we arrived about 10, the main entrance was closed so we wandered around a corner and almost ended up in a clinic. We saw a door with a doorbell marking the museum so we rang it--someone answered and let us in. The woman that showed us a bit of the museum only spoke italian but she was so very kind in trying to explain things to us. We do know some spanish and a lot of medical terms were similar so we felt we understood a fair amount of what she was trying to convey. They have absolutely fascinating specimens of conjoined twins, anencephalic newborns and a large selection of surgical instruments. There is a recreated pharmacy and laboratory as well as medieval examination tables. We were the only visitors that day so far and it was just delightful! Highly recommend for physicians, nurses, etc. We did pay an admission fee of 7 euros or so but it was completely worth it!
