About us / Accessibility / Accessibility at Berwick Museum and Art Gallery

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

Here are the 10 key points to know:

2. There is an admission charge to visit the museum (please see our Admission & Info page for more information). There is a concession rate available and accompanying carers go free.

3. There are male/female, an accessible toilet and baby change available on site at the barracks.

4. The nearest changing places fully accessible toilet is situated in Tesco Extra, approximately 5 minutes’ drive from the museum.

8. We have designated 10.00-11.00am on the last Sunday of the month as a Quiet hour, when the museum usually has fewer visitors and sound will be turned down. Please contact us if you would like to know more.

9. When you visit the museum, 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. We run free daily talks.
