Weston Park Museum is a historic building and doesn't have any dedicated car parking. The nearest public car park is the Q Park on Durham Road, just a 5 minute walk away. Visitors using this car park are able to claim 25% off the price of their parking – just ask a member of staff for a discount voucher (this discount is currently unavailable with pre-booked parking spaces).
disabled parking spaces at the top of Mushroom Lane are temporarily unavailable due to building works. There are a further three disabled parking spaces available toward the bottom of Mushroom Lane near the tennis courts (access to the museum from these is through the park). Blue badge holders may also park in the Pay & Display bays on Mushroom Lane, (near the Dam House entrance) and those on Damer Street near to the Weston Park gates without the need to pay or adhere to the 4 hour max stay. Similar Pay & Display bays are also available for use a little further away on Northumberland Road.
Weston Park Museum 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.

Following guidance from Public Health England, the museum’s Picnic Space on the 1st floor will be closed for a while. We’ll open it as soon as guidance allows. While you’re not able to eat on site we’ll be operating a pass-out system to give you time to enjoy a picnic in the park or to get food from elsewhere. Just ask a member of staff in the museum foyer for a pass-out token.
Large print 'Find out More' sheets are available in the exhibitions along with versions of all interpretation. Our What's On guides and flyers are available in large print on request.
