About us / Accessibility

We want as many people as possible to enjoy a visit to our museums.

Visiting the Museums

We want as many people as possible to enjoy a visit to our museums and we are always looking for new ways to improve.

Though we’re trying to get there, not all of our buildings are fully accessible to all visitors.  Many of the museum historic buildings have a variety of ground surfaces, some of these will be uneven and there may be gradients in places. For some of the buildings and galleries there is stepped access.

When you visit the museums, you’ll encounter many sounds, smells, tastes and textures.  You can handle objects and surfaces, so that you have can have a multi-sensory experience.

Our Visitor Services team have recently become Dementia Friends and are available to assist with your visit.

For popular exhibitions and activities, we regularly offer quieter sessions outside of our normal opening hours. Check our events page for further details.

You can find more information about access at each of our museums by taking a look at our Access Plans, copies of which are available for download below.

We welcome your feedback, so if you have any suggestions for improving accessibility at our museums, please contact us via email at hello@museumsnorthumberland.org.uk
