Abbey House Museum


A lively, interactive museum which was short-listed for the Guardian ‘Kids in Museum Family Friendly Award' in 2011.

Entertain the family with something different, from a huge range of under 5 and family activities, dressing up, trails and tours, parties and more.

Wander the recreated Victorian streets of Leeds and enter the enchanted shops and houses to discover what life was really like in the 1850's. Follow the streets upstairs and explore the childhood Galleries, marvel at 19th century dolls houses and toys and play the penny slot machines.

Take a break in the cafe and then step outside to use the children's play are or wander over to Kirkstall Abbey and explore the Abbey grounds!

    Such a great place to take the family, especially on a sunny day to take a beautiful stroll through the ruins. The Gatehouse cafe attached to the museum is amazing, delicious cakes that the kids love.

    A fantastic day out.
    Perfect for pre schoolers with lots of dressing up and play areas with toys and books.
    The cafe is good with plenty of high chairs and child friendly options. The car park is right next to a playground. Cross the road and explore Kirkstall Abbey if you haven't worn them out yet.
