Bring my father here at least twice a year as he loves old aircraft. Not a massive space but every inch of it is covered with planes and aviation artifacts. The volunteers here do a sterling job and are very friendly and knowledgeable.

I really cant be sure but I dont see why not. It is not a busy place and mostly on one open floor. They are very nice people so I'm sure you will be fine.
