Although we’re on the first floor, our new museum is fully accessible. Lift access is available, and the layout of our new spaces ensure there is room for wheelchair or buggy users to navigate round the galleries.

Head into the Partnership Centre through the main entrance, and go straight ahead through the entrance area to the main corridor. Turn left to find the stairs or a lift that take you to the museum entrance on the first floor.
Our welcome desk and shop are just inside to the right.

The Partnership Centre reception desk by the main door can point you in the right direction if you’re not sure where to go!

The museum consists of three main galleries, and a community room.

Toilets, including an accessible toilet, are available in the centre. There are no food or drink facilities in the Museum, but there are numerous cafes, bars and restaurants in Linlithgow just minutes away.
