Accessibility and disability arrangements / Covid requirements
The museum is housed within a Victorian Police, Fire and Ambulance station so please be aware that access into and around the building can be limited. For this reason entry into the museum is charged at £5.50 for wheelchair users.

The majority of our building is accessible to those using a standard wheelchair. A lift is available to access all floors, and additional ramps and wider doors have been installed to improve accessibility for wheelchair users or those with mobility issues. Our cobbled courtyard can also be tricky for anyone with moderate to severe mobility issues, and there are occasional steps throughout our ground floor. Our main staircase has worn through years of use and can be uneven underfoot, so watch out for those! Please make sure you consider these details when visiting.

​Despite listing restrictions to our building, our staff are more than happy to help you as much as we can to ensure you make the most of your visit. If you have any concerns or need additional help, please speak to a member of staff.
