Accessibility information

Tolson Transport Gallery is temporarily closed

Our apologies, the Tolson Transport Gallery is temporarily closed.

This sadly means the route to the access door is unavailable and we cannot currently offer step free access to the Museum.

Please accept our apologies, we hope to resolve this soon.

The ground floor is fully accessible but the first floor can only be accessed via stairs as there is no lift. We have disabled parking and a fully accessible toilet. We also have a hearing loop installed and our front of house staff have undergone disability and equality training.
