The entrance to Hollytrees Museum is cobbled and the Upper Ground Floor hall is tiled. The rest of the museum floors are carpeted and flat.
The museum is spread across several floors and the displays can be viewed in any order:
- Ground Floor – the shop, Visitor Information Centre and exit
- Upper Ground Floor – the Garden Room, leading to the hall and the Bernard Mason Clock Gallery
- First Floor – Running the Home Gallery
- Upper First Floor – the Childhood Gallery, leading to the Portrait Gallery and the Temporary Exhibition Gallery
- Second Floor – the Education Room (typically roped off as it is used by schools and for events)
All the rooms are accessible via lift or stairs. If using the lift, please be aware there are 2 sets of doors which open on the different floors. This can make manoeuvring more difficult for wheelchair users, particularly anyone using a larger or longer chair or scooter.
The route from reception into the Upper Ground Floor hall is quiet narrow and there are a few steps.
Some of our displays are spot lit, while other areas, such as the crawl through tunnel inside the Childhood Gallery, might appear quite dark.
