The global exhibit, “Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition,” has arrived at Westfield Oakridge Mall and brings you one of “mankind’s greatest artistic achievements” up-close and personal.

Through high-definition photos + special printing techniques, the ceiling paintings of the Sistine Chapel are brought to life, and visitors can observe the intricate details and brushstrokes within each of the 34 frescoes.

We had the chance to view the exhibit over the weekend, and here are our takeaways:

  • The entrance is a bit hard to find, but it’s outside facing Blossom Hill Road, in between Nordstrom Rack and BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse.
  • Expect the experience to take about an hour.
  • We were told that special events will pop up occasionally, including live music and paint-and-sip nights, so keep an eye on the website for updates.

The exhibition will run until Sunday, April 30, and tickets start at $22.50 for adults, and $19 for children ages 4-12.
