Getting here by Coach

For cars, bicycles, and public transport (Bus & Train), please see our Find Us page here.

Coaches can drop their passengers off near the Museum entrance, but please ensure that coaches park down the side of the Museum past the main car parks. Alternatively if your guests are comfortable to walk directly from the parking area to the Museum (approx 200 yards) then there is a pathway to do so. If you require assistance on arrival (wheelchairs or a helping hand), please let us know.

See our Map here. There is a 20mph speed limit on site and speed bumps along Linsay Road.

On arrival please book in at Front of House. If you are running late on the day or need to ask any questions, please contact the Group Booking Team on 01929 405096 ext. 212
