Information for Visitors with Limited Mobility and Wheelchair Users
There are a number of steps up to the entrance to the Hall and museum. The historic nature of the Hall has prevented major alterations to the fabric of the building but wheelchair users can gain access to the ground floor using the available “Stairmates” operated by the museum staff.
To obtain the assistance of a member of staff please press the bell located outside the hall entrance.
The displays inside the hall are on two floor levels. The first floor displays are regrettably inaccessible for wheelchair users.
Please note that fire regulations limit the maximum number of wheelchair users in the building to five at any one time.
Toilets accessible for wheelchair users are available both in the museum and in the nearby courtyard buildings in the grounds. There is a wheelchair available for loan at the museum free of charge. This is located in the entrance hall to the museum.
There are seats throughout the building and all inside stairs have handrails.
Information for Visitors who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing
The nature of the displays is such that they are ideal for visitors who are deaf or hard of hearing to enjoy.
