Civic Museum in Palazzo Eroli in Narni
The Civic Museum is situated in Narni's old town centre, behind the Town Hall. With its 2700 sqm hosts major paintings, sculptures and archaeological sites that allow the reconstruction of the city's history.
Its centrality has transformed the Museum as a tourist information centre to find schedules of openings for visiting artistic heritage, events and initiatives in the city and in the territory, as well as book guided tours of the old town centre.
As the town culture building, the Museum offers the possibility of an ongoing cultural exchange through conferences, presentations of books and publications, meetings, thematic tours and workshops for children with a "child-friendly Museum" to create a permanent itinerary and to interact with the collection on display.
Palazzo Eroli, rich noble residence in Narni, is also a perfect setting for temporary exhibitions and for the Museum collection.
The Museum is divided into two sections: the archaeological collection, which includes artifacts from prehistoric to medieval times, and the picture gallery, with works dating from the 14th to the 18th century.
Among the most interesting works we can admire: the Incoronation of the Virgin by Domenico Ghirlandaio and the Annunciation by Benozzo Gozzoli, the Egyptian Mummy with its decorated wooden sarcophagus and the bronze Cup of the fountain in the main square (Piazza dei Priori) from 1303.
