Helping you with your visit.
The majority of the museum is wheelchair accessible, however the Headmaster's House, Galleried Classroom and 'Officer's Dug-out' are not. There are video tours showing of the Headmaster's House and Galleried Classroom, and pictures of the dug-out are available on request. The museum has a fully accessible toilet.
Large print of text panels and exhibition descriptions are available on request. The museum is kept well-lit throughout, and staff and volunteers are available to help or accompany you during all public opening hours.
We welcome visits from those with learning difficulties, and provide sensory learning where possible- such as object handling. All of our staff and volunteers are able to help and give extra attention if required. If you have specific needs, please contact us in advance of your visit so we can best accommodate you. We are also a recognised 'Dementia Friends' museum.
We have ample space for leaving your buggy, either in the cloakroom on the lower site, or in the porch-way at the top of the site. Although staff and volunteers are present at all times, please note that we do not accept liability for buggies left unattended.
The museum has a large accessible toilet, within which there are also baby-change facilities. If you require a quiet space for breast-feeding, we will endeavour to find you somewhere private, but please note that this is not guaranteed due to events that may be in progress.
Our guide notes are currently available in French and German, and many of our staff and volunteers speak other languages. We do not want a language barrier to impede your visit, and we will try to accommodate wherever possible. Please contact us in advance if you require information in a language other than English.
