Disabled Access

Because the museum is located in a listed building, it has not been possible to link the two sections of the museum (which are at different levels) with a wheelchair ramp. While the main part of the museum is all on a single floor, with no steps, disabled access to the communications gallery, which is at the top of several steps, is via a separate entrance. Please ask the reception desk volunteer(s) to open the entrance.

Note that some surfaces in Wollaton Park are composed of uneven gravel. There is no disabled access to the upper viewing levels of the Basford beam engine.


Nottingham Industrial Museum contains many exhibits that fascinate children, and they are very welcome. However the exhibits are often protected only by low wooden or metal barriers. Please keep children with you at all times, especially when the machines are in motion. Children below the age of 16 are not allowed in the museum unless accompanied by an an adult.
