[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Visitors can now enjoy better access to one of Paisley’s most famous attractions.

A £40,000 programme of access improvements has now been completed at Paisley Museum and Art Galleries – a Grade A listed building opened in 1871.

The building is now fully accessible to wheelchair users or those who have restricted mobility.

The work included a new access corridor, stair adaptation, and a new chair lift.

Councillor James Harte, Convener of Renfrewshire Council’s Sport, Leisure and Culture Policy Board, said: “The permanent and temporary exhibitions and the quality of the building itself bring people back again and again to Paisley Museum and Art Galleries.

“Our aim with this access improvement programme was to enable everyone to enjoy the attraction.

“Renfrewshire’s cultural sector is at the centre of Renfrewshire Council’s programme to regenerate the local economy and boost employment and investment.

“That programme takes in Renfrewshire’s Tourism Strategy and the Paisley Town Centre Heritage Strategy.

“We recognise the contribution that our heritage can make to our future and we are proud to have improved access for all to such an important part of that heritage.”[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
