Lyme Regis Museum Access Statement
Our access statement aims to give an honest appraisal of access within our museum.
Accessing the museum
We are committed to always doing our best to help you to access as much of the museum as possible. Please do contact us or talk to us on arrival if you have any questions.
There is level access at the entrance to the museum and throughout the ground floor. A lift takes you to the first floor, and there is an accessible toilet on this level. The building is compact and accessibility for motorised wheelchairs is limited.
Despite recent improvements, we regret that some areas of the building remain inaccessible to visitors with limited mobility, and the second-floor gallery and rotunda can only be accessed via a flight of stairs.
Babies and children
Families with babies and children are very welcome at Lyme Regis Museum, and you will find baby change facilities in the accessible toilet on the first floor. Pushchairs can be left in the entrance foyer for the duration of your visit (please be aware this is at your own risk).
Working dogs are very welcome at the museum.
Alternatives to fossil walks for individuals, schools and groups
Our Education Officer Chris Andrew is very happy to discuss your personal or group needs. We can offer alternative experiences to fossil walks such as fossil handling sessions. Please contact us for more details.
