University Pass Program

sotheby's group 2

This past year, students from all over the world were given an exclusive experience at the Vatican Museums, including unprecedented and convenient access, dynamic lectures, private tours, and merchandise discounts all as a part of our partnership program with universities.
These partnerships allow universities to receive recognition for restoration of crucial elements of our museums while giving their students the opportunity of a lifetime that students will love. Last year we welcome students from the Sotheby’s Institute of London, the University of Steubenville and Marist College, to name a few, and received raves from students and faculty.
This becomes a formative experience for students who are not only given the rare chance to learn from Vatican Museum experts but also to see the importance of a life filled with philanthropic care. The University partnership is one that truly provides a spiritual and classical education.
If you or someone you know is linked to a university and may be interested please keep this program in mind. It’s a wonderful way to spread the word of our mission! For a donation to the Restoration & Preservation Efforts of the Vatican Museums, your school can have an exclusive, behind the scenes experience at the Vatican.
