This is a really interesting place! Once you pay for entry you can go back within a year free!! It took nearly 3 hours to go through the whole lot but it was a really enjoyable day! Would recommend!

Lots of interesting displays, if you pay once you get a free pass for a year, which is worth it if you live nearby but maybe not so much for tourists. Has some good education exhibits, really enjoyed.

A great museum for medical & non medical people alike . The building itself has a story to tell ... Firstly as a work house then it became a military hospital during the war !
You can follow the lives of people that actually had treatment there ... Including medical notes !
You can also see & SMELL the slums of Leeds . Pay a visit .. U won't be disappointed .

I learned a lot here, great underground old city street was a big surprise, videos and old medicinal equipment, beds and mock ups meant I was entertained for hours. My kids loved it!
