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.

There was a lift at the end I believe but don't take my word for it. Try ringing the place up and asking.
