It may not sound universal but this museum is very well done. There are tons of exhibits here, some a bit blood-thirsty but it is done in a modern way. In addition there is a nice place to eat in and good views of the canal area of Leeds.

Visited Sunday afternoon. Museum is fantastic, free and well worth a visit even if you are not an armour and weapons nurd. Some extraordinary things to be seen. Only downside is avoid the café on the second floor, staff clearly did not want to be there. Very poor. But rest of experience outstanding

A very good free museum. The exhibits are phenomenal to see however it does get a bit samey as you go through. The staff are not overly friendly if I must be critical. It's great to see if you're in the area but don't make a special journey. Some of the interactive exhibits did not work and it's certainly not... More

Only got there at 2.30pm so didn't get chance to see all 5 floors, but what we did see was great. If you like guns you will love this, so much to see and do as there is interactive things to do also. We are going back in a couple of months with the kids, age 16 and 17, they... More

Collections and displays of weaponry and armour from early medieval times right up to the present. Well presented in a comfortable modern setting with excellent other attractions and Leeds City centre and the Riverside attractions within easy walking distance.

One of my favourite places, work close by so can come in my dinner time and start where I left off. Here today with my 8yr old son he's got a shorter attention span so no reading the labels, it's truly amazing what they think about these weapons. Hollywood shows gun fighters shooting out of windows without aiming and hitting... More

If it isn't broken don't fix it? Isn't that what they say? Great value. IT'S FREE!!! The exhibitions are amazing. I could spend all day walking around. My young boys however wouldn't, but they did enjoy it. Just ikkle lazy legs. Fantastic day out for very little money. Blessed to have this in Leeds & not darn sarth!
