We regret that at this time our lift is out of order. We are working with our lift engineers to get it working as soon as possible. Apologies for the change in plans. 

The Museum of Cambridge does not have a wheelchair accessible building. Visitors with limited mobility can explore the shop, which is accessible via a street level entrance. There is also a wheelchair accessible toilet on the ground floor, with a rail.

Visitors with additional needs are welcome to bring a supporter or carer who will be admitted to the Museum free of charge.

All visitors should be aware that our building is very old. Though full of character, it also has uneven floorboards, narrow staircases, and crooked doorways. There is a lift in the building if required.

We are working on enhancing our accessibility and we recognise that this is a core development priority. In the meantime, please do explore this collaborative project with Kettle’s Yard. It is not intended to be a ‘virtual tour’, but it showcases the Museum’s interior and highlights some of our objects.

If you would like further information, please do call us on 01223 355159. We can provide more details specific to your needs and welcome feedback on how we can make your visitor experience the best it can be.
