Adelaide, the wait is over. Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition has arrived and the doors to one of art history’s greatest ever accomplishments are now open in the heart of the city. Tickets to experience the 34 famous frescoes are still available thanks to the exhibition being extended by one week until October 14.
Doors are now open to Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition
The global exhibition, which has already astounded visitors in Europe, North America and across Australia, can be found on level one of Rundle Place in Rundle Mall. Step inside and visitors will be face-to-face with one of pop culture’s most parodied paintings, The Creation of Adam, as well as representations of God, the prophets and all the angels of the heavens that Michelangelo painted on the walls and ceilings of the Sistine Chapel.
The exhibition will be in Adelaide until Sunday 14 October when the displays, which have been produced using high-definition photos and a unique photo-printing technique, will be packed up and shipped to Sydney. This is your chance to see Michelangelo’s magnificent work without having to jet across the country or across the world to Italy where 30,000 people line up to see the Sistine Chapel every day.
You can still be one of the first to experience the exhibition in Adelaide and even record your visit with your very own photos—something that you can’t do when in Rome. Take into account the informative signage and audio guides available and your Sistine Chapel visit is an even more awe-inspiring experience.
Immerse yourself in the work of the master artist and get a unique perspective on the infamous frescoes of the Sistine Chapel. Don’t think it’s the same as visiting the Vatican City—it’s not and it’s not meant to be.
However, it’s a phenomenal complement to the real deal where visitors can explore each interior painting at their own rhythm. And if you’ve already visited the Sistine Chapel, the exhibition is a fabulous throwback you don’t want to pass on.
