This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Powerchair
Partially wheelchair accessible.
Transport & Parking
There is a car park behind the museum but there are no marked bays.
Entrance in via a ramp. The door is lightweight and manual. There is a doorbell to ask for help if needed. Once through the door you are on the ground floor. This floor is accessible in a wheelchair and contains drawing room, morning room and dining room. The information boards are not in large print. I was able to see everything in this floor. The basement is accessed via the gardens. The path narrows to 740mm at one point and has a tiny step at the end. The side door has a step (about height of many dropped kerbs); however due to the mud my chair actually got stuck. With much pushing I managed to get in. The shop is small and would be difficult to access in a wheelchair due to the layout of the displays. The kitchen is accessible in a wheelchair. The air-rade shelter cannot be viewed in a wheelchair as there is a step single step. The gardens are accessible as long as your chair can get through a gap of 740mm. There are benches. Level 1 and 2 which contain the bedrooms and servants quarters are inaccessible as access is via a steep staircase. There is a virtual wall through tour of these floors available online available on the Pickford House section of Derby museums website.
Toilets are accessed via the staircase on level 1.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
I have recommended a ramp.
