There are seven rooms over two floors which tell the history of the house, from its Tudor origins to its role as a Victorian girls’ reform school.
There are standard toilets available on the ground floor with a small step to the toilet room.
Access to the museum is via the red door on Park Row. Immediately upon entering there is a flight of nine stone steps and a further flight of stairs into the house, as well as stairs to all floors and to the garden.
We have a small space for buggies at the bottom of the stone steps into the house. Please ask for assistance upon entering.
If you have a mobility issue, please contact us in advance as we can open the Lodge Street entrance for you to view the garden. Lodge Street is steep and the garden has a paved pathway with some uneven slabs. There are a number of stone steps leading from the garden into the house.
Folders containing photographs of the displays upstairs are available on the ground floor. Assistance dogs are welcome.
