How to get here

The Museum is in Sneinton, about 1¼ miles east of Nottingham city centre, near Green's Windmill & Science Centre (follow the 'Green's Windmill' signs from the city centre). Access the Museum via the walkway to the right of the row of shops on Sneinton Road - at the junction of Sneinton Road and Notintone Street. Please note that the Museum is not visible from the street, as it is tucked within a courtyard among several Salvation Army buildings.

On foot: It's about a 20-minute walk from the city centre and the railway station.

By car: If you're travelling by car the post code for your sat nav is NG2 4QG. On-street parking is nearby (please take note of any restrictions). Disabled parking is available in the staff car park to the rear of The Salvation Army Complex and Museum, off Harold Street (please call in advance for directions).

By public transport: Bus number 43 from King Street in the city centre passes the Museum ('Windmill Lane' stop). For bus timetables and further information on getting public transport to the Museum visit Traveline East Midlands.
