    Access to the museum has a threshold as well as an internal flight of stairs, approached by handrails, to go down to the reception floor, where there are the ticket office, the refreshment services and the meeting space for guided tours. However, the reception desk is too high to allow easy access by people with reduced mobility, and accessible toilets are located near the ticket office. The access of people in wheelchairs is allowed, through a secondary access. The dedicated path winds through the courtyard, usually closed, from which you reach one of the two lifts that allow you to reach all floors of the building. The elevators are usable only by groups or individuals with specific needs, replacing the stairs always flanked by handrails, in the presence of the staff responsible for the operation of the service. The tour of the plan dedicated to the Archeology of the cinema is sufficiently wide for the movement of the wheelchairs and presents sessions distributed homogeneously, in addition to those functional to the exhibition; these have a reclining seat to allow the vision of the equipment that offers the first systems of reproduction of images and animations and are equipped with eyepieces that can be oriented to the needs of the visitor. The bulletin boards and interactive activities are partly accessible and usable by everyone since they are placed in display cases that do not have a hollow space below the exhibition floor for easy access. The plan of the “Temple Hall” is usable throughout the large vaulted central space, from where one can enjoy the projection of cyclically repeated film sequences; while the 10 side “chapels” are largely inaccessible because they have steps flanked by handrails or small spaces to allow the movement of baby carriages, except one near the second elevator
