New improved access by ramp and full height doorway gives to a staircase down to the lower chamber. A viewing platform high inside the shaft offers balcony seating for a limited number of people: priority given to those with impaired mobility or using a wheelchair. Serving delicious cocktails before the performance and during the interval in the museum’s Midnight Apothecary Garden. Not to be missed!
