Secular Gregorian Museum

The secular Gregorian Museum is one of the Vatican Museums. It houses a collection of antiques that was once part of the Lateran Museum, now extinct. It was founded by Gregory XVI in the Lateran Palace, in 1844, then transferred to the Vatican at the request of John XXIII, and reopened in 1970. The museum includes objects that, for the most part, come from excavations and finds made in the Papal States.
