Getting to the museum: the museum is reached from the town centre by a rather steep (but short) uphill walk. Some visitors may feel more comfortable taking the public bus, details of which are available on our Directions page.

we have limited parking space outside the museum, reserved for disabled parking.

Inside the museum:
the building is very old, so we advise visitors to take care on the uneven floors. The ground floor has a number of steps, some rooms are accessible to wheelchair users.  The upper floor is not accessible to wheelchair but can be viewed via a digital photo frame.

Baby care: Baby care facilities are available in our accessible toilet, located in the courtyard.

Buggies: Due to the size of the museum, we request that visitors do not use buggies within the museum. They may be left in the reception area.

Food and drink: Food and drink may not be consumed in the museum, except during special events. There are no cafe facilities within the museum.

Shop: The museum shop sells a variety of gifts, books and toys - many at pocket-money friendly prices!
