Very accessible venue for a wet day out indoors
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Mobility Scooter
This place is very easily accessible on my mobility scooter with a wide and smooth entrance and loads of things to see and do that I could access. As good and interesting for children and adults. All the staff were helpful and friendly. There is a restaurant and kiosk if you want to buy lunch or a snack, but also space to eat a packed lunch if you prefer.
Transport & Parking
All the parking is a little way from the entrance but there are blue badge spaces and the walk from them to the museum is flat. Public transport is available from Glasgow city centre.
There were no steps and a large lift to access the three floors. There is also another smaller lift if you walk past the large one. Signage is reasonable if you look up. In both the theatre and panetarium there were a good number of wheelchair spaces with regular seats next to them on the back row so both shows were easy to watch. Many of the exhibits had stools in front of them especially on the top 2 floors and all the labels and signage was clear.
There was a disabled toilet on each floor but the downstairs one was hard to get in and to do so you had to block the entrance to the men's toilet which also made it hard to reverse out. The two I used had red cords that weren't quite straight down but did reach the floor. There were plenty of rails.
All very helpful.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
It was easy to spend 5 hours there, learning a lot and enjoying all the interactive games, screens and explanations.
