Where can I park?

Pay and Display car parking is available in Eastwood.

Just around the corner from the Museum on Scargill Walk is a short stay car-park, with one hour free parking (with a voucher only). Maximum stay is 3 hours. The length of your visit will vary depending on whether you are guided or self-guided, so you will need to ensure you place sufficient time on your car parking ticket.

Long-stay car parking is available at the Sun Inn car park (£1 all day) on Kelham Way, and also on Victoria Street, with both only a short walk to the Museum.
