Members of the Patrons of the Arts in the Vatican Museums contribute annually to the support and preservation of artwork in the Vatican Museums in Vatican City and Rome. Members receive a complimentary copy of the Vatican Museums Report, a bi-annual publication, as well as a membership scroll signed by the President of the Vatican City State. As a member, you will also be invited to the many social and educational events throughout the year sponsored by our local chapter, including trips to Rome to view artwork in the Vatican Museums.
And finally, as a member you are an honored guest of the Vatican Museums. Not only is your admission complimentary, but you will also be accompanied by your own English-speaking guide who will deepen and enrich your visit. Membership also entitles you to tour sections closed to other visitors, such as restoration laboratories, to see firsthand how your conservation efforts have made a difference.
