Well presented for adults and children. Free admission and museum is a nice easy walk from central Leeds. There is a water taxi option that can take you to or from the train station area. (Also free). Enjoy the creative presentation and sense of history.

This is a great museum experience with well laid out galleries that tell great stories in an interesting way. I don’t think it’s quite as good as London’s Imperial War Museum but 5* nevertheless.

We spent a few hours here and found it very interesting and informative. This is a very large building, with 4or5 floors, with lots to see. Plenty of lifts and cafes, and is disabled friendly. We enjoyed our morning here.

Visit to the Armouries midweek with friends turned into an awe inspiring day of complete astonishment, for a museum such as this which has free admission is a chance that’s not to be missed. There is something for everyone with 5 floors of historical excellence...More

Parking can be a little bit difficult...however the museum is free...plenty to see and do...my daughter enjoyed the combat fighting demo and the story about the Japanese fighter....had a go on the crossbow range, where there was a slight wait...eight arrows for £3.00
