Overview

We attended as part of museum lates, during the Edinburgh Fringe. As well as the galleries being open there was also entertainment. Added to that excellent accessibility, including a Changing Places toilet. This was a fun and engaging evening, with lots to see and do.

Access

5

There are automtic entrance doors, lifts to all floor and museum is well laid out so it is not crowded. We attended a special event and they had a priority seating area, for people unable to stand. This was situated to the side of the main stage and there were excellent views, see photos. I live in London and I go to a lot of museum events and I have never seen this before. It is such a simple but brilliant idea, and it meant that I could watch the show comfortably. Other venues should take note! We also visited the galleries and special exhibition. Throughout there is seating. The only slight thing is in the basement/ crypt which is how we entered the museum, it is a little dark and this may be a problem for some people, see photo.

Anything else you wish to tell us?

The museum is wonderful and well worth visiting. It has a little bit of everything, so something for everyone. The highlight of the night was seeing Dolly the Sheep. Highly recommend as it is fascinating, fun and accessible.
