Information for Visitors with
We regret that the nature of the
building does not allow a stairlift to be installed therefore we are unable
to provide access to the upper galleries. However, there is a ramp for ease
of access to the ground floor exhibition hall and the layout of the display
cases has been designed with wheelchair users in mind. In addition a bell
has been placed on the courtyard wall beside the entrance to the museum so
as to enable wheelchair users to summon assistance from the staff if
Slide presentations of exhibitions on the upper floor and the Tapestry are
available for viewing, and our display texts have been printed according to
advice from the RNIB.

inexpensive souvenirs (see Gifts and Greetings
