The museum is in a heritage and listed building and as such is not fully DDA compliant.

The ground floor is accessible once the door-step at the entrance is negotiated. Upstairs is accessible to those who are able to climb a flight of stairs.

Group Visits

Group visits are welcome all year round.

For pre-booked visits, we arrange for a number of guides to be available, so that small groups can move round the museum and have plenty of opportunity to ask questions.

The house will open specially to accommodate a group visit.
