We know that some of our visitors will have concerns about gaining museum access to the cast gallery and its collection. As always, we recommend reading the accessibility information carefully before planning a visit to one of the Cambridge museums. Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.
To ensure that you are happy with your access to the Museum of Classical Archaeology and your needs are met, we ask that visitors who require disabled access to notify us before their visit.

The Museum is located on the first floor of the Faculty of Classics. There is level, paved access to the building itself and disabled access to the Museum is via a separate entrance and lift. Our cast gallery, which is our main display space, is all on one level – and it is a wide and open space, with minimal obstructions.
There are three disabled parking bays on the Sidgwick Site. Two are behind the Museum in the main car park, giving you easy access to the museum. To reach the third, follow the road through the car park as it turns right and then left.
All staircases have continuous handrails.
The Faculty of Classics has disabled facilities at Entrance 1 (the main foyer entrance) and Entrance 3 (where the lift is located).
Please notify us of any special requirements in case of emergency. The Faculty and Museum are equipped with evacuation chairs.
The Museum is very well lit and guide dogs are very welcome. Large text versions of the display labels are available in each bay. Touch tours can be arranged on request.
The cast gallery is carpeted and usually very quiet. Unfortunately, we have no induction loop.
