We want to make sure everyone gets the best possible experience of our marvellous museum here in Gloucester. So here's how we're making it more accessible.
The National Waterways Museum, Gloucester is housed in an old warehouse with uneven and worn flooring. The quayside is a working area and may be slippery in wet or icy weather. Please ask a member of our team if you need any help.
There are pay and display car parks close to the museum with blue badge parking spaces. It is a very short walk on a paved surface to the museum. We have a wide access, double fronted entrance.
We recommend you allow at least two hours to enjoy your visit. Please ask a member of our team if you need any help at any time.
The main museum warehouse is fully accessible for wheelchair users. No4 Dredger is accessible for wheelchair users from the dock side; sadly wheelchair users are unable to board at the moment. (We're working on that one.)
'Queen Boadicea II's gangplank (yes, we still have those) is too narrow for most electric wheelchairs, so she's only accessible for manual wheelchairs.
Hearing dogs are welcome. Companions and assistants get free entry to the museum when accompanying a paying visitor.
Guide and assistance dogs are welcome. We also recommend a sighted assistant join you when you visit. Companions and assistants get free entry to the museum when accompanying a paying visitor.
Despite being an original 18th century building, Llanthony Warehouse does have lifts to all six floors. Don't worry - the lifts are thoroughly 21st century.
You'll find our fully accessible toilet on the ground floor with other toilets on floor 3.
