Very glad we took a City Wonders tour through the museum since there is a lot to see. Whether you take a tour or not, I highly recommend arriving early as we went in the off season and it was still very crowded by 10am.

Do not miss. It’s worth getting the early bird ticket to get into Sistine chapel before crowds arrive. It’s the most incredible art I have ever seen.

Did the research and came to Rome in fairly low season (November) and visited the museum on a Friday entering around 1:00pm. Although there were plenty of visitors, here was no line to buy entry tickets and virtually no lines within the museum, including to...More

I suggest that you buy a 'Skip the Line' tour to avoid the long queues. We did this and walked past horrendously long queues. This can be done online.
