Facilities & access at Weston Park museum
Weston Park is a historic building and as a result there is no dedicated car parking at the Museum, however University car parks nearby are available for public use on weekends only.
Please note: Due to building work by the University of Sheffield, the disabled parking spaces directly adjacent the museum at the top of Mushroom Lane are unavailable until 26 August 2013. There are still three disabled parking spaces available toward the bottom of Mushroom Lane near the tennis courts with access to the museum through the park.
Weston Park is fully wheelchair accessible. All exhibitions and displays are on the ground floor of the building and the upstairs activity rooms are easily accessible via the lift. Wheelchairs are available to borrow on request.
The Museum has ground and upper floor toilets with disabled access and baby change facilities.
The Museum has lockers and space for buggys and prams to be left in the main foyer.
