  • Extraordinary modern place, in a nice gentrified neighborhood striped with canals, containing arms and armor from ancient times to the present. Excellent historical diorama of Agincourt especially cool. Hands on Knight's helmets and gauntlet displays as well as life-size medieval battle scenes, tiger hunting, crossbow shooting. Amazing arms collection of real weapons of all sorts from ancient swords to machine guns. Nice cafe on the canal. Great for kids. All free. The central hall display itself worth the trip.
  • What a great trip, really well worth the visit. What an enjoyable few hours we had. If you want a rest from the extensive shopping that Leeds has to offer then this is definitely the place to go. What a great building. Fantastic exhibits and shows put on by museum staff. Really very good indeed. 🙂
