Both the main and the level entrance have double doors with a half-height vision panel.  Visitors with wheelchairs will probably need to open both doors.  A second pair of double doors is held open during building opening hours. The door to the seminar room has no vision panel.

Seminar Room

+ more

The seminar room is almost directly opposite the main staircase.  From the level entrance, turn to your right down the main corridor, and the seminar room is about halfway down on your left hand side.  There is a slight slope to the room, so only the first couple of rows are at ground level.  You can, however, get to the ends of all of the rows.  There is no designated wheelchair space, so your best bet will be to park at the end of one of the rows.  The rows are narrow, with flip-down seating, and there is step to reach the presentation area with no handrail.
