Haidarishak, that is a good question. We write "the Sistine Chapel" rather than "a Sistine Chapel" because there is only 1 Sistine Chapel, it is a unique place. In a similar sentence where there is more than 1 of the location I could write "I've never been to a museum before". That situation is different because there are many museums. However if I was writing about 1 specific museum again I would refer to it using the word "the".
