Lighting and Colour contrast
Lighting levels have been carefully designed to avoid causing glare and shadows though the shop. Some exhibition areas have atmospheric lighting but care has been made to ensure areas are not unnecessarily dark.
Shopping areas are flat and level. Where stock is displayed at high level, staff are available to assist as required.
Wherever possible, pathways are flat and level and of adequate width for wheelchairs and buggies. Wheelchair access is available to the classroom. There are a number of resting places placed along the garden trail.
Planet Earth Museum
All areas are flat and level and of adequate width for wheelchairs and buggies.
Although disabled access to some play equipment can be restricted, consideration is given to ensure selected areas have been created that can be used by all.
We have trained staff who are qualified to administer first aid.
