The museum is accessible by taking the lift to level 8 of Chester Street Car Park and walking across the adjacent footbridge. Access is also available via Crellin’s Hill, although this is a steep Walk and via the Garden Entrance at the bottom of Crellin’s Hill. Disabled parking spaces are also available immediately outside the museum entrance, with level access into the museum.
Please note: the Manx Museum Entrance area will be undergoing works between December 2018 and April 2019. Signage will be in place during this time, directing visitors to a temporary accessible entrance area. Revised disabled parking arrangements will be in place at times during works.
