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.
The whole is supported by state-of-the-art equipment like large screens and lighting systems.
The "CaffEroli" coffee bar inside the Museum invites visitors to read, relax and refresh themselves.
A large indoor room is stocked with an extensive bookshop, a reading section and a children's corner.
There is also an extensive consultation room for adults on art, history and tradition and one reserved for young visitors for an entertaining approach to art and history through didactic activities. Adjacent is a spacious terrace overlooking the charming Nera river gorge.

 

A child-friendly Museum!

New educational path devoted to families.

The project developed by Sistema Museo, with indispensable contribution of the Umbria Region and support from Narni Municipality, aims to improve accessibility for families of the Civic Museum and make it a more welcoming place for a very special target... the whole family! Each station has different activities, divided by age groups, able to engage young visitors in an inspiring and creative way. Parents direct and support their children's experiences. Currently three positions have been created, one located in the Roman archaeological section, the second placed in the Medieval archaeological section, third placed in the art gallery. Each totem includes a small handbook for parents and for each micro proposed activity there is some technical information and some text that goes more in-depth. All texts are in Italian and English! Lots of pictures, lots of games, lots of fun ... lots of culture for all ages! Let's follow Leon the museum's lion mascot, in this discovery route!
