Hi i see a lot of reviews mentioning the steps but is there any lift or other access for wheelchair users? I would like to visit this week but My wife is confined to a chair.
Wheelchair users now have access to the ground floor and to the first floor via a specially installed lift. A DVD of the upper floor and the attic is available to view while at the museum, which shows the Artists and Scientists rooms on the second floor. This is updated every year to show the year's special exhibition in the attic above. Records of exhibitions from earlier years may also be viewed. However, our lift is now out of service and there is no access to the first floor. As they can only see the ground floor and DVD, wheel users will be given free entrance until the lift is repaired.
