The museum is ground floor but the panorama platform (from where the Panorama painting can be seen) has a spiral staircase of 23 steps. The stairs have handrails on both sides. There is a chairlift that a museum attendant can help you access. However, because the staircase to the panorama is a monument, there are limitations.
