Inside the museum

There is level access to most of our displays however care is required. Surfaces are sometimes uneven and outside there are some gravelled areas.

The first floor of the Long Shop is only accessible by an original, steep stairway. There are folders on the ground floor which give a flavour of these upstairs displays.

The introductory video has a good commentary and works without being able to see the visuals.

If you would like to discuss your visit beforehand please call us on 01728 832189 or email us

Induction loop

We can bring in an induction loop for group visits and need 2 week’s notice.


We have accessible toilets on the ground floor.
