Accessibilita
Accessibility:  accessible

The sidewalk in front of the main entrance is connected to the street level. The short path to the museum entrance is in bad condition. Moreover, one needs to use a rather steep ramp to overcome the four steps at the entrance of the museum. The toilet for the disabled is at the entrance of the museum.

The museum offers a tactile path for people with visual disabilities: it is in the mammal fossils gallery. A specific file can be requested at the entrance to make easier finding the touchable objects, reading the explanations in Braille/ high readability letters. Moreover, fossils reproductions through 3D prints are available and specific guided tours are recommended. (Reservations at +39 055 2756444 educational service)
