Weston Museum is working towards being as accessible as possible. There is a lift for wheelchair users and those who cannot manage stairs to access the main upper floor galleries. Due to the nature of Clara’s Cottage being built in 1865, this part of the museum is unfortunately not completely accessible to wheelchair users due to narrow corridors and a staircase.

 

General Access

All of our Galleries offer the following:

  • Wide aisles, allowing access for wheelchairs
  • Lift to the Museum galleries for wheelchair users and those who cannot manage stairs
  • Gallery seating for breaks during the course of your visit.
  • A carpet runner is available for those with limited mobility who might find it difficult to walk across the cobblestones in the courtyard. (Please contact the museum before you visit

 

Pushchairs & Buggies

  • Due to the nature of the upstairs gallery, pushchairs and buggies are not permitted.  However, we do have a cloakroom area to store pushchairs and buggies (after you have taken your child out of course!)

 

Wheelchairs

One wheelchair is available free of charge for those who arrive in larger mobility scooters that do not fit into the lift.

 

Assistance Dogs

Assistance dogs are welcome at the Museum.

 

Audio Trails

There are audio trails that are particularly helpful to assist blind and partially sighted visitors and provision has been developed to make the museum dementia friendly.

 

Toilet Facilities

The museum building have disabled toilet and baby changing facilities.
