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. You’ll find baby change facilities in the accessible toilet on the first floor. You are welcome to leave pushchairs in the entrance foyer for the duration of your visit, although please be aware that any items are left at your own risk.

Assistant dogs

Assistant dogs are very welcome at the museum.

Alternatives to fossil walks for individuals, schools and groups

We are always 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.
