Recently the Municipal Administration has invested heavily in the historic buildings of the City of Towers in order to allow citizens and tourists to get to know and visit them again. On the Civic Tower in particular it was necessary to carry out checks, studies and adjustments to make it compliant with current regulations and allow access to the public.

Today the museum houses the IAT office with the unified ticket office of three museums (Magiche Trasparenze, Navale Romano and Multimedia Center) and archaeological sites. The Civic Tower requires entrance tickets and reservations on three shifts (10.00 - 11.00 - 12.00) for groups of up to 8 people.
