Museums are open and free to all on the last Sunday of the month (very busy). Check opening times for the Vatican (vatican.va) before you visit. Note that the Vatican museum is closed on most Sundays
When visiting Rome it’s always best to start early in the morning to allow enough time to navigate the large crowds around the main sights.
