Access to the museum

We want everyone to enjoy the museum. It is fully wheelchair and buggy accessible, entry is free for essential companions, we have a Changing Places toilet and we welcome registered support and assistance dogs.

The museum offers relaxed openings on the last Sunday of each month from 10am–11am when the lights will be up and the sounds down.
