There is a ramp to the museum from the car park, and lifts and level access throughout Eastern House and the Tunnels. The escape stairs are not wheelchair accessible due to their nature, being hewn through solid granite, but there is a screen in the tunnels allowing visitors to see what they are like.
A limited number of lockers are available for leaving bags. Belongings are left at owner’s risk.
A family ticket covers two adults and up to 3 children (aged 5-16).
An introductory talk and demonstration of some of the original equipment takes place regularly throughout the day. This is included in your admission.
Most visitors spend in the region of 2.5 to 3 hours at the Museum
Due to the nature of the artefacts in the Museum, some of which are on open display, we regret that dogs are not allowed inside (assistance dogs excepted). The café has an outside seating area where dogs are allowed as well as the grounds and gardens.
Our café offers snacks and a fantastic range of home baked cakes – as well as some of the best coffee around.
We have taken steps to ensure the safety of all our visitors and staff. Please see our Covid-19 page for more information.
