Hi there,I would have to sorry but not really as from the museum which is at the top of the hill you take a long walk down a framed stair case and some of the steps are strap to the path which is at the bottom and from there you walk along the rail way which the path is very Stoney and has some of the rail way sleepers still in place.
I would how ever say if you do travel by mini bus etc to the museum the area at the top but the car park and the museum walk way and also in the museum are ok for access.
Hope this help in some way.
