Collections and displays of weaponry and armour from early medieval times right up to the present. Well presented in a comfortable modern setting with excellent other attractions and Leeds City centre and the Riverside attractions within easy walking distance.

One of my favourite places, work close by so can come in my dinner time and start where I left off. Here today with my 8yr old son he's got a shorter attention span so no reading the labels, it's truly amazing what they think about these weapons. Hollywood shows gun fighters shooting out of windows without aiming and hitting... More

If it isn't broken don't fix it? Isn't that what they say? Great value. IT'S FREE!!! The exhibitions are amazing. I could spend all day walking around. My young boys however wouldn't, but they did enjoy it. Just ikkle lazy legs. Fantastic day out for very little money. Blessed to have this in Leeds & not darn sarth!

Visited with my son who is almost four and my mother. We were initially greeted by a lovely member of staff who gave us a 'monster finder' sheet for my son and a list of the talks which were available. My first impression was the the place is bright and open. We took the stairs to the top floor as... More

Been there few times, it's definitely one of my favourite museums ever. The variety of exhibitions and activities are just brilliant. So excited to see the section where they have weapons/armouries from Asia and my country, Malaysia - like the keris (daggers) and swords. Love the interior, very appealing for children and adults. There were activities held in the museum,... More
