Oh my word! If you love history and archaeology don’t give this a miss. It’s a small building but so much to see. Do yourself a favor and get the VR experience. You’ll find yourself surrounded by Romans, a wild boar and you get to “wonder thru the ancient building”. And the narrative is fun,

This is a very important and informative collection. The highlight was the restoration areas and the very young school children being shown the works. Beautifully presented with a lot of seats to sit and contemplate the works.

I loved the whole thing. The paintings are tops and lead light displays are just beautiful, the spray staircase is amazing. The works by Leonardo Da Vinci was incredible, the crypt are great. The is no crowd too. The best.

Positive and interesting experience, I appreciated the information and courtesy of the staff. Some more detailed information on the Crypt would have been very welcome.

The visualization of Raphael's depiction and the works of Leonardo da Vinci were very impressive
