Area accessibility

Please note that some areas of the grounds and buildings are not suitable for all visitors. In places the paths are steep and there are steps leading to some areas. So the full site may not be suitable for all...

We are happy for wheelchairs and Mobilty Scooters around the site, but please be aware some areas are not suitable and you may have difficulty.  Please contact us for futher details and help. The Museum itself is a flat area, wheelchair accessable with a drop-off zone outside.  While there is no parking on site, there is parking within easy walking distance.
