Did you reproduce everything inside the Sistine Chapel?
Our mission was never to copy the entire chapel, so bordering elements such as the Ignudi angels and other framing devices are not included. It was necessary to crop some of the images in order to fit them into the display design, but rest assured: all key images from the ceiling are included.
Is the artwork in the exhibit the same size as the original in the Vatican?
Since the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel is curved, these reproductions are as close to the original size as possible.
What is the source of the images and when were they taken?
The exhibit is produced by Special Entertainment Events (SEE), a L.A.-based exhibition production company which acquired the worldwide rights to the fresco reproductions from Bridgeman Images. The photographs were taken post-restoration of the ceiling; in some cases, color enhancement was necessary to match the images for consistency.
How long should I plan to spend at the exhibition?
The average visit lasts between 1 to 1.5 hours. Although this is a ticketed and timed event, all tickets will be honored as space allows.
What is your refund policy?
All sales are final. Refunds are not available on purchased tickets. A ticket purchased for a specific date may be exchanged for a different time or date, depending on availability. Please see our staff at the box office and they will assist you.
Is the venue wheelchair friendly?
The Mall of America is wheelchair friendly and also offers a variety of guest services such as stroller and wheelchair rental. Get more information.
Can I take photos inside the exhibit?

When is the best time to come?
Weekends are traditionally the busiest days, so expect large crowds then.
Do you allow strollers?

Can I bring food or drink inside?

May I host a private event inside the exhibition?

What COVID-19 measures and precautions will be in place during the exhibition?
