Photo of the Day – Serious Statues – Vatican Museum – Rome, ItalyThrough all of my global adventures I’ve been able to explore the majority of the top museums on the planet. But the Vatican Museum absolutely blew me away. The small size of the museum relative to its peers is what sets it apart. Most museums seem to follow the pattern of showcasing a few pieces of art in empty, grandiose rooms. The Vatican Museum takes a different approach and literally lines the walls of their rooms with its impressive collections. The rooms are much more raw and are absolutely overflowing with an endless supply of art.
I particularly enjoy a very long corridor of the Vatican Museum with hundreds of busts on display. Take a slow walk down this hall and I promise your jaw will drop in amazement. I took this photo of several of the heads lined up together in this room.
What is your favorite museum you have visited? What is unique about the experience that makes it stand out from the rest?
