sistine chapel closed from 10-12:30 tmrw... re-entry?

Hi all So I have a reservation tomorrow for the vatican museum and Sistine chapel at 9am and just got an email saying they're closing the Sistine chapel from 10-12:30.... I have the scavi tour scheduled at 1:30pm as well. Will I be able to rush to the Sistine and spend most of the hour there and then check out the rest of the museum while its closed off? And is it possible to re-enter the museum again after the scavi tour if I want to? I hope the closing doesn't throw too much of a wrench in our plans!

You should be able to get to the chapel before it closes then return to visit the museums. Once you leave the museums for the scavi tour you will not be able to re-enter the museums. Donna
