The majority of the barn can be accessed via the main entrance but the floor is uneven and space is restricted due to the nature of the displays.

The ground floor of the oast house can be accessed but the floor is uneven and space is restricted due to the nature of the displays. The first floor can only be accessed via a steep and narrow staircase.
