Most of the Museum buildings are fully accessible. There are accessible toilets, automatic doors and a lift.
There is a car park on site with three dedicated disabled parking bays. The entrance to the Museum is wheelchair accessible and is approximately 30 metres from the car park.
A lift provides access to all the Museum galleries, the farmyard, the Abbey Barn, the café and the Community Learning Space.
There is level access on each floor of the buildings with space to manoeuvre between displays. Some doors open automatically. There are accessible toilets on the ground floor and adjacent to the Community Learning Space.
Unfortunately we do not allow dogs into the Museum galleries, the orchard or the Abbey Barn, except for assistance dogs. Dogs are welcome in our outside courtyard space, where there is seating available. Admission charges do not apply to visitors who only want to use the café. Museum staff will be available to direct you.
