Arrival at the National Museum of Scotland by Car

There are 4 on-street Blue Badge parking spaces at the National Museum of Scotland (located in Chambers Street). Parking in these bays is free for Blue Badge holders. The accessible parking spaces cannot be booked in advance though, but are allocated on a “first come, first served” basis.

Entrance - Access to the National Museum of Scotland

There are two entrances to the National Museum of Scotland (the Main Entrance and the Tower Entrance. Both entrances are wheelchair accessible. However, the Tower Entrance is a lot quieter – so I would head there. As it is on Level 1, using the Tower Entrance also avoids having to use a lift to access the main gallery.

Quieter and easier? Sounds good to me.

All floors of the National Museum of Scotland are accessible via the wheelchair accessible lifts.
