Following an extensive piece of work to improve accessibility across its 3 sites, Sheffield Industrial museum now welcome the Access Card in order to encourage disabled people to use their accessible services and enjoy some of the rich culture and history of the ‘Steel City’.
The key aim of the Access all Areas project has been to investigate the particular issues posed by industrial museums and heritage sites for visitors with disabilities, to identify solutions where possible and to share our findings widely across the museums sector.
Access Card Holders will now be eligible to concessionary rates as well as free companion entry for those guests that require support. For more information visit the SIMT websites Accessibility Pages http://www.simt.co.uk/accessibility
