Access

Elgin Museum is here for the community and is run by members of the community. We aim to be accessible to all.

The majority of the displays are on the ground floor which has sloped access to the Rear Gallery. As a result of the constraints of the building’s design, we have been unable to install a lift, but the upstairs temporary displays can be viewed in a folder of photographs of the objects displayed with accompanying text.

Given advance notice, we can make most objects available from anywhere in the Museum, including the stores, and also provide objects suitable for handling.

The public toilet in the Museum is downstairs and adapted for wheelchair users.

Our staff and volunteers are on hand to make everyone’s visit as effective as possible, and anyone with special needs is encouraged to ask. We are a relatively small museum, enabling us to provide a personal service to visitors who require a guided tour.

There is a hearing loop in Reception and in the Museum Hall.

We have printed guides to the Museum in several languages.

Outreach – our Education and Outreach Officer can visit residential care homes and special interest groups for reminiscence and object handling sessions, and can is also able to visit schools.

Please let us know if you have any suggestion of we might be able to improve.
