A traveling Sistine Chapel exhibit is on its way to the Mall of America. 

Beginning Nov. 13, Minnesotans can experience a reproduction of Michelangelo's artwork at the Mall of America. The exhibit marks MOA's first traveling exhibit since the pandemic began, and the MOA says it will be enforcing all safety measures required by the Minnesota Department of Health, such as wearing masks and social distancing. 

The official website for the exhibit reads: "With special expertise and care, the ceiling paintings from the Sistine Chapel have been reproduced using state of the art technology. In order for the observer to fully engage and comprehend the artwork, the paintings have been reproduced in their original sizes.

"The overwhelming impression for the observer will be the dimensions of the art, the closeness to the picture, and the modern style of the exhibition. As a result, the visitor can explore the artwork up close at a distance impossible to achieve in the Sistine Chapel." 

An audio guide in four languages will also be available for visitors to access using a smartphone. 

Tickets cost $19 (children under 6 years old are free) and go on sale Nov. 9.
