Disabled car parking is available and signposted within the main car park.
The Museum’s accessible entry point is signposted from the car park into the building via a side door behind the Clock House Café building. Door widths and access points into and within the building are suitable for standard sized wheelchairs and small mobility scooters.
An accessible toilet is available onsite; at present it is reached via a steep ramp which may be challenging for some wheelchair users.
- Exhibitions: All main exhibition areas are located on the ground floor which operates on a single level. The Grand Hall Gallery is accessible via stairs only. A photographic slideshow of exhibits in this area is provided in the Grand Hall for visitors who are less able to climb the stairs.
- Events: During special events and behind the scenes tours, due to availability of space some relevant areas and activities are located on the first floor of the building, which is accessible only via stairs. Some activities/displays also take place within the Ballroom/ Function Room on the ground floor, which is accessed via a steep ramp.
- Grounds & Gardens: The front of the building and grounds is accessed via a gravel driveway from the car park. Please note that some grass areas and the lawns are uneven.
The museum will open on Fridays from 11am – 3pm from 5th April 2019 to 27th September.
