Whilst every effort has been made to ensure that the Museum buildings are as accessible as possible, due to limitations resulting from their Grade 1 Listed status, some parts of the building are not accessible for physically disabled visitors.
The main Museum galleries are fully accessible for disabled visitors and are on one level. However, the historic rooms on the upper floors are not accessible in a wheelchair.
For access to the Church, wheelchair users are asked to call in advance of their visit so that we can ensure that a member of staff is available to facilitate access to all areas of the Church site except for the Crypt.
The main Museum includes a virtual tour on film, which shows all the upper floor areas of the Museum that are seen on public tours.
Large print guides for each gallery are available.
The Museum is equipped with a First Aid room, which may be used as a changing room for babies.
You can find more detailed information on our Access page.
