VI Audio Guides are available from the Shop.

Guide dogs and hearing dogs are permitted in all areas of the Museum.

Accessible toilets are located on the first floor, next to the lift.

Wheelchair Access

Step free entrance and egress to the Museum. There is one step onto the café, but a wheelchair ramp is available.

The Museum covers five floors, four of which can be accessed by our lift. Visitors should ask a staff member if they wish to use the lift.

There is no lift access to the attic rooms; a touch screen interactive facility is located on the second floor which enables visitors to view the fifth floor is they are unable to use the stairs.

Due to limited space within the Museum, we regret that mobility scooters cannot be accommodated.

 

Driving to the Museum

The parking outside the Museum is metered; there is access to parking bays with a valid Blue Badge. This is subject to local restrictions. More information can be found on the Camden Council webpage.
