The entrance to the museum is on the opposite side of Vatican from the Piazza St Peter. A short walk around the block takes you to this unassuming entrance. Entrance fees are about $11 euro. Be sure to get the audio guides. There is so much history and art to see you will want to know the story behind the magnificent pieces.
