Kaikoura has 2 mobility carparks located beside the building. The carpark is flat and concrete with direct access to the path to the museum via kerb cut out. The entry has a wheelchair ramp and the automatic front door is 98cm wide.
The museum is deliberately quite with no sound-based displays. The only sound is a background recording of the ocean. All exhibits can be seen from a wheelchair without issue. There are accessible bathrooms and powerpoints available for powerchair users. While the museum is entirely on the ground floor, there is also a library upstairs that can be accessed by a lift.
Please contact the Kaikoura Museum directly to ensure these walks can accommodate your specific needs.
