accessibility & facilities
access FOR ALL
Aerospace Bristol is committed to providing an exceptional experience for all visitors.
Set over two buildings - a grade II listed WW1 hangar and the new purpose-built Concorde hangar - the museum site is fully accessible by those using wheelchairs. However, Concorde was sadly not designed with easy access in mind and has a very narrow aisle between the seats.
Our Main Exhibition Hall has low lighting to enhance the exhibits with ropes positioned low down to prevent restricting the view, and we advise those with partial sight to speak to a member of our team if they have any concerns.
The museum has wheelchair accessible lifts, easy access toilets, and baby and disabled changing facilities. For visitors with disabilities, we have 10 disabled parking bays near the entrance to the museum. The museum has three wheelchairs freely available for visitor use (pre-booking is advisable, please call us on 01179 315 315 or email email@example.com to pre-book).
Aerospace Bristol offers free entry for dedicated carers, and guide and assistance dogs are, of course, very welcome.
If you have concerns regarding mobility, or if you need further information prior to your visit, please do give us a call on 01179 315 315 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
