Fast Facts – Accessibility

Over the next few months, we will present fast facts about the reimagined Museum. This week’s theme is accessibility.

Once Paisley Museum reopens in 2024, there will be:

  • New lifts and step free access to museum galleries on all levels of the building
  • Toilets on all levels, including a Changing Places room by the new entrance.
  • A new observatory garden with ramps providing step free access between the museum and the observatory.
  • Public access to Transit House (which defines Paisley’s very own Greenwich meantime) for the first time in decades.

Did you know about these changes? How do you feel about the improvements being made to the Museum?
