Disabled access

As the Wellington Museum is situated within a 300-year-old listed building, unfortunately it has not been possible to make the museum accessible to wheelchair users. Please accept our apologies. 

The museum is, however, accessible to visitors with other types of disability: please call or email and we will be very happy to explain access arrangements. You will be admitted free of charge.

Guide dogs are permitted within the museum.
