Explore Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel without leaving London at this amazing art experience this winter.

Are you ready for a chance to get an up-close and personal look at one of history’s greatest works of art this Christmas? Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition arrived in London a few months ago, allowing you to explore the stunning details of Michelangelo’s iconic work without having to travel to Italy. The exhibition closes next month, so if you’ve not yet checked it out, we recommend booking your tickets for this Christmas outing, stat.

Thanks to digital technology and the LA-based SEE Global Entertainment (SEE™), a family of companies that specialise in global touring exhibitions, this stunning spectacle showcases the awe and wonder of arguably one of mankind’s greatest artistic feats while allowing visitors to experience it from never-before-seen perspectives. You’ll find the display at the Cannon Factory in Tottenham Hale, transformed with the artistic genius of Michelangelo until January 16.

Allow the artistic genius’s masterpieces to blossom, enfolding you in their brilliance—Tickets are on sale until mid-January, and you can find yours here.

With special expertise and care, the ceiling paintings from the Sistine Chapel have been reproduced in a truly unique way by using licensed high-definition photos. Then, using a special photo-printing technique that emulates the look and feel of the original paintings, they are reproduced in all their glory and displayed so that visitors can see the artworks much closer than the original.

Visitors will be able to engage with the artwork in ways that were never before possible: seeing every detail, every brushstroke and every colour of the artist’s 34 frescoes. Each image is also accompanied by informative signage and audio guides will be available for an even more in-depth experience.

Whether visitors have already been to the Sistine Chapel or not, everyone at Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition can admire the artwork up close, at their own pace and with the ability to capture their experience of the iconic work in photos.

This globally successful exhibition is an innovative and unique interpretation of Michelangelo’s timeless masterpiece which was painted in the artist’s signature fresco style on the freshly plastered walls and ceilings of the Apostolic Palace in Rome, Italy between 1508 and 1512.

Michelangelo completed his work between 1535 and 1541 with the renowned piece The Last Judgment, which visitors can also marvel at in this innovative and cutting-edge interpretation of one of the world’s most famous interior paintings. Don’t miss the chance to experience a part of Rome in London with Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition.
