Situated in west London on the Fulham Road. On the approach to the Stadium Tours and Museum there is a gradual slope, with some uneven surfaces, levelling off to a flat access to the Museum itself.

The Museum is situated on the second floor with lift access. There are tour guides to assist once inside and audio guides are available.
