Vatican Museums Tour For Kids

Visiting a museum with your kids might be a challenge: tours rarely are tailored for children or teen-agers so if you’re looking for a Vatican Museums Tour that is kidfriendly, our guides can make a difference.
Our team of specially selected guides know that it’s not only about playing, it’s also about letting your family enjoy a unique experience while focusing the energy of the younger ones.
Our tour keyword is “FUN” and we aren’t the only guides, sometimes parents discover they are as well!

Guides will be focused on capturing your children’s attention and stimulating their imagination with visual aids.

We realized that interactive tools are the best way of engaging the youngest ones in a group…  and are as fun for them as they are for the whole family!

This Vatican Museums Tour for Kids is designed for families with parents who love art but are worried about boring their children. We want to keep the family together and be able to give an exciting art experience for all different ages.
Our guides will explain, in a playful way, the most important story of the Italian Renaissance: the creation of the 12.000 square foot ceiling of the Sistine Chapel by the “extraordinary” Michelangelo Buonarroti.

The tour will cover the main galleries and a quick visit to the Egyptian room to see….the Mummy of the Vatican Museums! Then we’ll start the “journey” to the highlight of the tour: The Sistine Chapel.

The Sistine Chapel is one of those places where everyone, young and old, can learn and make a discovery.

The amazing story of a sculptor chosen to be a painter and succeeding in the biggest challenge of his life is very suitable for children and will be a surprising discovery for your kids!

IMPORTANT: this Vatican Museums for kids tour is specifically focused on the Sistine Chapel and is very “light” so as not to overload children with too much information. If you wish to have a deeper knowledge of the Vatican Museums and of St Peter’s Basilica, please ask for a Vatican Standard Tour.
