The Manx Museum (Thie Tashtee Vannin) is bursting with artefacts and treasures unique to the Isle of Man. The Island’s 10,000 year history is presented through film, galleries and interactive displays. The perfect starting point on your journey of discovery around our Island and its Viking and Celtic past.
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.
Changing Place Facility:
The Museum features the Isle of Man’s first publically accessible Changing Place toilet, offering safe and clean toilet facilities for people with multiple and complex disabilities.
The facility includes:
a sizeable changing room for disabled people and carers
height adjustable changing bench
overhead power tracked hoist (please note all users are required to bring their own sling)

Designed with the input of the Changing Places Consortium, disabled people and their carers, the facility is available to help people with complex needs stay out longer in the Isle of Man’s capital, visit the Manx Museum and enjoy the surrounding area.
