Art & Architecture Site Visit to the Vatican Museums

Date Published: Nov. 2, 2016

This week the students attended their penultimate Art & Architecture visit to the Vatican Museums, one of the best (and biggest!) art museums in the world. Dr. Robinson held a shortened class on campus to introduce students to the highlights of the museums, which prepared students to guide themselves around the building. Students saw major works, such as the Laocoӧn, the Belvedere Apollo, the frescoes of Raphaels Rooms—including the Schools of the Athens—and Michelangelos Sistine Chapel.
