This place was free and totally captivating for our 9, 15 yrs and adults. Lots of buttons to press and real people giving demonstrations. It was better than the armour on show in the tower of London. Shop was full of great presents for people. I didn't like the floor about hunting as I love animals so it upset me... More

we visited the dino exhibition at leeds dock so went across to the armouries. my husband loved it, looking at all the armour and exhibitions. the kids are only 2 a.d nearly 4 but they really enjoyed it too. j dont think i would go to leeds just to see the armouries however it was nice to see everything.

The area around the armouries is well worth a visit. Its only a short walk from the city. The armouries are free. There is lots to look at. Its worth a visit

The displays are well presented and very informative. We met very pleasant and knowledgeable staff around the different areas, and those involved in animations were excellent and developed good rapport with spectators/audience. The Nelson Bistro on the ground floor has a restricted menu, but the pasta dish and burger dish were excellent. Meal for two with drinks for less than... More

We went hear when my Dad came to visit. He seemed to really enjoy it but he loves his history, especially battles and war history. The museum was informative and seemed like there was a lot their for all the family. It is not somewhere I would choose to go if I wasn't with people interested in Armouries.

A really good museum with lots of sharp and pointy stuff. Loads of free events during the day. The crossbow range upstairs is fun. Pay more to see the jousting but it is well worth it. Loads of kids at times but if you want to avoid that then go on non school holiday times.

Not everything in the Armouries is about war and fighting. There is much more, and at the end we found the exhibition about Peace which was good. There is a great deal to see from all around the world and from all points in history, right up to today. The cafe is reasonably priced and serves good coffee and lunches.... More
