All toilets, including accessible toilets, and baby changing facilities are available on the ground floor.

Access to the museum, lifts and ramps

The museum is accessible for wheelchair users with level access at the Ticket Desk, and lifts to all floors. There are ramps in some areas.

Induction loops are located at the Ticket Desk, Cloakroom, Library and Information Desk. Our audio visual exhibits are either subtitled or fitted with induction loops.

Early and evening explorer events

For families with Special Educational Needs (SEN), including Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD), we open outside our regular hours on certain special days. Enjoy the Museum at a quieter time, free from the general public, and with many of the gallery sounds turned off for early and evening explorers. Find out more on our family pages.

We also run early explorer mornings for schools. Booking is essential - please see our schools page for more information.

To move backwards, hold down SHIFT and press the TAB key. At the top of each page there is a selection of links to the main parts of the page (navigation, content, search etc). These links are hidden until they are skipped to, at which point they appear in a yellow box at the top left of the page.
