Visitors are also permitted to use the free car park at the Manchester Fort shopping centre, a 3 minute walk from the Museum.


The museum provides ramped access towards the side of the building. Unfortunately only the ground floor of the building is wheelchair accessible. This includes the main synagogue area and the temporary exhibition gallery. The permanent exhibition is not accessible to wheelchair users but an audio guide of this area can be provided. We can also provide large print versions of our general information sheets.

There are two unisex public toilets located on the ground floor, one in the entrance area and the other in the temporary exhibition area. One toilet is fitted with horizontal grab rail. The toilet is 111cm by 160 cm so wheelchair access may be difficult. The width of the door is 74cm wide. The height of the toilet from the floor is 45cm.  The floor is tiled. The sink has a standard cold water tap and hot water is provided through a water heater.
