We have a single accessible unisex toilet for our visitors.

Refreshments - there are plenty of good local cafes within 5 to 10 minutes walk of the museum.


There is flat-floor access to all ground floor areas.

We regret that because of the historic nature of the building, access to the upper galleries may not be possible for people who find the stairs too challenging.

When the museum is fully open (non COVID-19 restricted), for any of our visitors who are unable to access the upper galleries, please request free entry to the Museum and the opportunity to view a video of the permanent 'Wallingford Story' display with audio.

Accompanying carers will be offered free entry.

We can provide limited on-site parking if booked in advance of your visit.  Please do contact us.
