Wheelchair Access

The Museum site is fully accessible for wheelchair users, but at a certain point on the journey around the site, you will have to double back to continue the planned route as a result of stairs located at the end of the Petersfield Gallery and just before the Don Eades Collection. If coming back across from the Flora Twort Gallery and taking the door on the right-hand side of the Petersfield Gallery, upon entry you will see some steps which lead up to the Don Eades Collection. To solve this issue, please come back around to the start of the Petersfield Today Gallery, and then opposite the Covid exhibition case you should see a blue door, which says 'Step-free access to the Stanfield Gallery, The Cells and The Pathways Gallery'. Please continue through this door to continue the Museum journey. 

Please ask the Museum team for further guidance if required. 


There is an accessible toilet by the reception/shop area near the main entrance and there is also an accessible toilet by the Courthouse.

Accessible Parking

There is one accessible parking space at the front of the Museum which is reserved for visitors with mobility issues. Unfortunately, this space cannot be booked in advance. 


There are some benches around the Museum where you can sit and contemplate, with further seating available in the Courtyard Café.
