Facilities and Accessibility

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 (and our team are more than happy to arrange a bowl of water for hard-working thirsty dogs – please just ask).

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.  You can download a copy of our gallery map, which includes some sensory information and other details here.

You can find more accessibility information by visiting our guide hosted on
Visit Britain’s website.
