Educational and interesting place to visit - if you are visiting Leeds this is an absolute must! Can spend hours here - there are plenty of events to thrill the kids ....a walk along the canal to get there is a must

Checked out the museum after a meeting in the city. It's a very large modern building which is rather ironic considering the huge collection of ancient armour, weapons and reconstructions on display. Definitely a few hours of exploration.

Excellent well presented displays. I had a look around during the course of the conference more interesting than some of the topics presented at the conference.

There's a really broad range of armaments and artifacts to look over here and some surplus activities to keep kids occupied. You can see the swords used in Lord of the Rings, WW2 guns and Shaolin horse armour all within a few hours.

There is so much on display here that it is almost overwhelming. If you're in town for a few days you might want to consider going a couple of times rather than fitting all the exhibits into one visit. We didn't have a map or...More
