Ulster Folk Museum

Accessibility

We want everyone who visits our museum to enjoy their time and make the most out of their visit. Plan your trip with this useful information about accessibility at the Ulster Folk Museum.

Exit Menu

Accessibility around the museum

Wheelchairs and mobility scooters are available to borrow and should be pre-booked in advance by calling the Visitors Centre on +44 (0) 28 9042 8428.

Please be note, the size and layout of this outdoor museum may pose some difficulty for visitors with mobility issues. Terrain is uneven across the outdoor site, with cobble stone streets, pavement kerbs and hills, and many exhibit buildings are not on level surface, some with a step to enter. Limited ramp access is available at key locations. 

Accessible car park

Our outdoor car park has 80 spaces, with 15 blue badge designated parking spaces. These are allocated on a first-come first-served basis and cannot be pre-booked.

Blue badge holders should make themselves known and security will direct them to available designated spaces or arrange drop off facilities. The nearest designated bay is 20 metres from the entrance.

The route from the car park to the entrance is on a flat surface and accessible to a wheelchair user. When the main car park is full, visitors are directed to park along the road within the museum or at the entrance overflow carpark. 

Assistance Dogs

Assistance dogs are welcome at the museum but must be kept with owners at all times. Water bowls are available at the admission desk.

Accessible toilets 

There are two accessible toilets available in the town area and two in the rural area of the museum. These are noted on the visitor map which you can pick up for free from our admission desk, of click to Download Museum Map.
