The Leeds City Museum offers an exciting, fun and interactive day out for all the family. There are six galleries for you to visit as well as temporary exhibitions which change seasonally.
Find out how Leeds has been shaped by its landscape and its people from pre-historic times to the modern day in the expansive Leeds Gallery. Objects on display include Bronze Age jet beads, an Iron Age pipe made from a sheep's leg bone, the Castleford milestone, Roman objects from Adel and Dalton Parlours, and fragments of the Anglo-Scandinavian cross from Leeds Parish Church. Explore the city's history with hands-on and audio-visual displays and see how fashion, housing, music, sport and even shopping have transformed the look of the city.
Times and prices are subject to change. Contact venue before setting out.
My children love Leeds City Museum especially the tiger.
And the lift which is not even listed as an attraction.
I have taken toddlers to The Natural History Museum - it was busy, stressful and they spent most of the time pushing rice cakes through a brass floor grate.
In comparison this Leeds city centre museum is an oasis of calm, it's just the right size to keep an eye on two pre school children, there's an under 5's play house on the second floor and there's usually some colouring in and dressing up to be found somewhere.
