Regrettably because of the age and size of the building, the museum is not suitable wheelchair users, prams or pushchairs.  It may be unsuitable for those with limited mobility due to the stairs. Prams/pushchairs etc can be left outside but this is at the owner’s risk.  We take no responsibility for items damaged, lost or stolen whilst left unattended.
