We are committed to improving access for our customers and we aim to ensure that all customers with access requirements have an enjoyable experience.


Unfortunately, our two-storey Victorian building currently has no lift, making first floor access difficult for visitors with mobility restrictions. We are committed to improve access in the future by raising funds to refurbish the building, making it fully accessible to everyone.

Our management team and resident makers are happy to assist your visit by bringing products downstairs, audio-description, or helping carry buggies or prams upstairs.

All roads surrounding the building have double yellow lines, the nearest car park is the Northern Quarter NCP. Blue badge holders can park on double yellow lines for up to three hours. For further information, see the Manchester council website.

Both our entrances are step free. On the ground floor we have an accessible toilet with baby change facilities. Our workshop facilities are on the ground floor. We welcome guide dogs and hearing dogs. Large print interpretation texts for our exhibitions are available on request.

Please contact the management office on 0161 832 4274 or email [email protected] to discuss your requirements.
