Good place to take children with lots of inter-active exhibits. Set in a pleasant area near river with a few good places to eat but most quite pricey. Car parking also expensive. Near enough to walk to bus stops and Leeds City Centre

A fantastic range of exhibits in a well maintained museum. I could have spent even longer gazing the the displays, but my wife was less interested in looking at weapons and armour than I was. She still enjoyed the visit though.

Not to be missed, taken back in time by actors doing different caractures from the past, a jousting arena, it will take you all day just to visit one floor and study it.

A excellent day out FOR FREE I love this place and it is the ideal location for those interested in Military History from around the World. Sadly the re-enactments have stopped, even so i have been here many times with each visit allowing me to discover something new. The Food Hall is quite expensive but there are no entry fees... More

This is a fabulous museum with excellent commuter links. Free entry and exhibits that will fascinate all the family. Live commentary from actors taking roles of soldiers, Henry VIII's wives etc and live jousting and birds of prey shows. Be aware parking is expensive and there are some things for which you have to pay once in - e.g. Crossbow... More
