We are currently undertaking a major overhaul of our passenger lift. We regret that access to the first floor galleries (including the Tunnicliffe exhibition) will be limited to the stairs. Wheelchair users will still have access to the downstairs galleries, coffee shop, art studio, garden and Wallsworth Centre. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused. Those unable to use the stairs will qualify for free admission during the works.
