The museum staff is gladly available to help persons with movement or other disabilities, in order to aid access to the various environments. The vastness and configuration of the structure however, has not allowed the removal of all architectural barriers. Therefore, we recommend a preliminary contact (tel. 0376 352100, or by mail at This email address is being protected from spambots.

It is possible to take amateur photographs inside the Museum with a smartphone, tablet or camera, for personal documentation, as long as no flash, tripod or selfie stick is used. Any other use of photographs must be previously authorized by the Management of the Museum.

Helpful hints

Backpacks, umbrellas and bulky items must be deposited in the cloakrooms.

We inform our kind visitors that during the winter period, the Castello di San Giorgio and the Apartment of Isabella in Corte Vecchia are air-conditioned. The other rooms to be visited, due to the nature of the spaces, are without a heating system. Consequently, we advise our kind visitors who leave backpacks, umbrellas and bulky items in the cloakroom, to keep their jackets and coats with them in case they would like to. Enjoy your visit!
