The Museum is housed in the earliest of the canal warehouses and can be found by following the signs to Shardlow from the A50 between Junction 24 of the M1 and Derby. Once in the village look for the Clock Warehouse family pub, a Mansfield Brewery house. The Centre shares its car park, and is in the Warehouse that lies between the canal and the road. The entrance is on the canal wharf that is accessed from the Clock Warehouse carpark.
The Centre is accessible for the disabled and so is the Clock Warehouse.
