Thank you for your enquiry.
The museum is located on the top two floors of the Control,Tower and also has a large display area on the ground floor of the main building. The ground floor has full disabled accessibility and there is a lift up to the museum level. Only one floor of the museum has disability access.
I hope the above helps and we look forward to seeing you.
