Galleries

The exhibition space on the ground floor is very full, and some areas are narrow – wheelchair users may need to be careful not to knock anything over!  Exhibits are either free-standing, or arranged in tall glass cases.  Exhibition space in the upper gallery is equally full so please take care, especially as light levels are low in some areas.  Audio guides are available from reception.
