Royal Armouries Museum, Leeds Reviews

  • I found this Museum during a previous trip to Leeds while using an all day bus ticket which I paid for when I booked my train ticket. It cost me ¬£4 which I found very good value for money and I recommend that you consider this. This Museum has no dedicated car park with a small exception. There are 3 or 4 disabled parking spaces outside the front door of the Museum but you Must book these with the Museum in advance of your visit. There is a Pay and Display car park close by but I don't know the changes ūüėē. The Museum is open daily from 10am until 5pm and it's Free ūüėä. Children will love this Museum as there is so much aimed directly at young people. A lot of hands on activities for all ages and numerous displays during the year. (Check out their website for full details ) Very good disabled access through out the museum and staff very willing to help in any way. Good catering facilities with views over the canal and reasonably priced. A very good day out for all the family in my opinion.

  • I really liked the museum. The staff there are very friendly and helpful.The items are interesting, and I like how they state if It was a replica or a module. The cafe and gift shop are full of nice things with a reasonable . prices and some pricey ones. I love the diversity of places and armours. There are some from Japan and an intriguing modern weaponry.

  • A fantastic collection from throughout time. As a buff on military history, this museum is a must see for anybody with a fascination for the development of war fighting through time and across many cultures. The exhibits are fantastically arranged and lit, really enhancing your experience. There is such era diversity within from modern self defence and policing equipment to ancient bronze era excavation finds and everything in between. Royal Armouries goes beyond the typical western/European focus as well, displaying a breathtaking range of Eastern artifacts spread from the Middle East and India through to Chinese and Japanese examples. I cannot recommend the Royal Armouries highly enough and I hope any visitors that read this enjoy their time there as much as I did.

  • We were recommended this place, even though we hadn't been planning on visiting. It was well worth the visit, lots of unexpected exhibitions, with guns from James Bond films and other surprises. Its also really interesting to see the war elephant armour and learn about that (you can also get a water taxi outside, run by a charity, towards the centre)

  • Set in a wonderful location, surrounded by eateries and walks along the canal. The museum itself is engaging, educational, interactive and most importantly interesting. I love my history, some of my friends... not so much. Yet we all had an amazing visit, shooting the crossbows at the end was a nice way to end the day. For a fun, free (please make a donation though) activity this is right up there as a must do when in Leeds.
