“Awesome experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

I have visited here both to look at the exhibits and attend a Christmas Function. The exhibits are truly awesome and varied allowing for a visit that could easily take up a full day. And it's free ! There is a donation box at the entrance.

The Christmas Function was well arranged and the trubute bands on a whole were very good. The meal was hot and tasty. The choc fountains were an experience I passed on but plenty were using it. The function room we were in had two bars and were well priced. An enjoyable night.

“cheap family day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

This is a brilliant museum and there is something for all the family. The interpretations are engaging and the staff are very knowledgeable.
Also the special exhibits are especially good. I remember when they had a Weta exhibition with real props and costumes from the Lord of the Rings and Narnia movies.
Overall my favourite museum in Leeds.

“company party”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

We had a venue change for our anual company party this year and went to the Royal Armouries in Leeds. Previous events had been held in the larger hotels in the city so this was a first for us. There were around 200 guests and from the welcome reception to the room, the food, the service etc I could not find fault in anything. The staff were excellent, very friendy and most importantly, very efficient.

The food for a mass catering event was fine and I don't recall a single complaint all evening.

Would definitely reccomend it.
