Accessibility around the museum

The majority of the museum buildings are accessible to wheelchair users, in most cases without assistance.

A limited number of wheelchairs are available for loan from our Visitor Centre. We also a mobility scooter available on a first-come first-served basis.

We regret that it is not possible to provide physical access to the upper floors of some of our exhibut buildings without compromising the accuracy of the historical experience. In such cases, visitors should ask to be provided with an alternative form of access, such as photographs.

The museum experience places a major emphasis on the sensory experiences of touch, smell, sight and hearing. Persons with sensory impairment will find much that is appropriate to their particular needs.

Assistance Dogs

Assistance dogs are welcome at the museum but must be kept with owners at all times. Water bowls for assistance dogs are available from our Visitor Centre. 

Accessible Parking

We have a large car and coach park with dedicated parking spaces for Blue Badge holders situated 100 metres from the Visitor Centre. All on-site parking is free.
