The museum is located on the Wharf just off Newbury Market Place and close to the Kennet and Avon Canal.
We are just off the Sainsbury’s roundabout on the main road through Newbury - A339. The museum is close to several pay and display car parks including Bear Lane and The Wharf.
By bus or train
We are only a short walk from the town centre bus stops and Newbury Railway Station.
We are close to moorings in Victoria Park and about 10 minute’s walk along the towpath from the marina.
The museum is fully accessible for wheelchair users and people with limited mobility. There are lifts at each end of the building. Floors are tiles or hardwood and galleries are designed to allow a wheelchair user free movement around the displays.
The Welcome area is accessible by a ramp. The shop has a step but level access is available by entering and exiting through the same door and entering the rest of the Welcome area by the ramp.
Our panels and exhibition labels are printed in accordance with readability guidelines. We can also provide large print versions for most exhibitions. If there isn’t one in the gallery, please ask.
We have a set of evacuation procedures and should you require it someone will assist you with evacuation either out of the building or to a refuge. We have evac. chairs to assist.
If you would like somewhere quiet to sit, please ask our staff. There are seats in most galleries.
