The top part of the museum is suitable for people with mobility problems, but the Air Raid Shelter, because of its caractheristics, is not for them. But just the part of the museum is amazing enough for a visit. You can spend a lot of time there, with all the information on touchscreens, different boards, etc. All the original uniforms, badges, flags, videos, and also a small e creation of the shelter where you are able to feel like during an air raid...
Hope this will help you a bit
