Toilet for disabled visitors
Toilet for disabled visitors

The Museum welcomes wheelchair users and tries to overcome the limitations of a historic building that does not provide easy access for people with disabilities. Portable ramps give wheelchair access to all areas of the Museum including the toilet for disabled visitors. We would be grateful if visitors in wheelchairs could notify us in advance if they intend to visit the Museum so that we can set up the wheelchair ramps ahead of their arrival.
