Today's visit was to look at the Accessibility of the museum as it has recently reopened after a major refurbishment of £308,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund..My first review was submitted before the refurbishment. The theme of the displays remain the same, so rather than repeat what has already been said this review focus's on accessibility.
There is limited car parking outside the venue, which is close to Alnwick Castle, there is more parking available in the town centre perhaps a ten minute walk away, but there is places to drop people off close to the venue.
There are stone steps into the museum, however for the less mobile there is a lift into the museum, this is clearly signposted.
All areas of the museum are wheelchair accessible and there are lifts to all floors.
There are wheelchair accessible toilets.
Assistance dogs are welcome,
Large Print information sheets are available from Reception.
Carers are admitted free.
The cash injection has enabled a new refreshment area, new interactive video displays and new displays.
Admission fees for 2014 are adults £4, concessions £3 with carers free. The museum is open Tuesday to Saturday 10-4.
