Furthermore the conspicuous collection of the town's most ancient finds, coming from the urban necropolises of the Crocefisso del Tufo and Cannicella, the Temples of Belvedere and Via San Leonardo and the surrounding territory, including the necropolises of Porano, Castellonchio and neighboring areas, were added to the collection. The finds are arranged following the modern topographical museum criteria. The finds recovered from recent excavations—or on-going excavation—are displayed following a rotating plan, which allows the visitor to appreciate the constant achievement of new finds
For those travelling with their own vehicle, the area of the cathedral, behind which the museum is located, is subject to the rule of LTZ (LIMITED TRAFFIC ZONE), therefore it’s necessary to carry the appropriate disabled permit to display on the car. In order to pass through the gates of the LTZ (LIMITED TRAFFIC ZONE) without incurring sanctions, you have to inform of the day of transit, the plate, the brand and the model of the car by fax to the number 0763-306341 or by email to email@example.com by attaching a copy of the disabled mark or of the car’s registration document. All must be done previously or within 72 hours of the transit.
In order to avoid the above-mentioned procedure, it’s possible to arrive in Piazza Duomo by driving along Via Postierla and Via Soliana where there are no gates but however it’s necessary to be in possession of the coupon for disabled. In proximity of the museum’s entrance, on the right side of the Dome, there are 5 reserved car parks. You can reach Piazza Duomo also with mini-busses of the urban service, and you can get off in Piazza Cahen, located near the big car park in Via Roma, reachable with one’s own vehicle and from the trains’ station by bus or funicular.
The National Archaeological Museum of Orvieto is located on the ground floor of one among three papal palaces behind the dome and can be visited by people with motor difficulties or using aids such as wheelchairs. The facility is not provided with audio-guides. The entrance to guide dogs is allowed to facilitate the visit by people with impaired sight and blind; but there aren’t any particular services or measures.
