The museum is located on Castle Hill which is approached via a steep but accessible hill. There is a lift which can take you onto each floor. However there are three steps down to the disabled toilet and the WWI exhibition which may prohibit some users. It is our hope to make every visitor's experience in the museum both informative and entertaining and we ask that wheelchairs users let us know in advance of their planned date so that we can make as much preparation as possible. It is the museum's policy to charge admission to disabled users but to allow any carer free admission. The Research facilities are fully accessible to disabled users. The museum can provide a wheelchair free of charge if required.
There are a limited number of parking spaces for Blue Badge holders in the harbour area.
