For easy access

Entering the museum

There is one entrance for visitors outside the sandpit play area at the side of the museum building when approached from the front car park. The entrance can be approached by three steps or a ramp with a gradient suitable for wheelchairs.

Large automatic double doors provide the entrance to our building.

There is a Visitor Services Assistant at reception to help to direct visitors around our building and to open the front double doors should further access be required for larger mobility vehicles.

We have a wheelchair available to visitors kindly donated to us by Castle Comfort Centre, Wolstanton.
