Disabled Access Limited. Access to the Museum is difficult for those who are not able bodied. It is in a historic building in the roof of a Church and the main entrance is via a narrow spiral staircase. We are not the landlords of the building and getting listed building permission to make changes has therefore not yet been possible. For further details on access click here:
Alternatively, we can give a talk to your group (please ring to discuss) or look at the Virtual Tour. We offer braille guides to the museum, and also plan to offer a tape guide and are hoping to install an induction loop.
Toilets – Please note the museum does not have visitor toilet facilities! Visitors are advised to use the public toilets at Guy’s Hospital or Borough Market.
Cafe and refreshments
The Museum does not have a cafe although there are many cafes, restaurants and snack bars in the area including the very fine food available at the famous Borough Market. The Museum does have a water fountain for free water.
