Is there wheelchair access?

The Museum is fully accessible by wheelchair.  There is an alternative wheelchair route to avoid the steps from the 1845 Wilderspin Schoolroom to the Playground: retrace your route to the main entrance and exit via the ramp to the Playground gate.  It is clearly signposted.

Motorised wheelchairs can be accommodated – although it would be helpful if you could telephone in advance of your visit so that we can ensure the best route is kept clear – to avoid tight corners and “classroom clutter”.

There is designated parking for disabled visitors.

We have one wheelchair that can be borrowed.

There are wheelchair accessible toilets in each building.

The coffee shop can accommodate wheelchairs.

Please call if you have any further questions or special access needs.

Can I donate an object to the museum?

If you have an object which relates to the history of Wilderspin National School that you would like to donate please contact us. For further information see our support page.
