Practical information

Disabled access

The Wellington Museum has a lift for people with reduced mobility. It is now possible to move freely through part of the museum.

However, as the building is over 300 years old, some rooms are not yet accessible. We apologise for this, but work will soon be carried out to remedy this problem.

In order to allow visitors with special needs to fully enjoy the visit, please contact the museum in advance so that the team can explain all the arrangements to you. Access will also be provided. Guide dogs are also allowed in the museum.
