Leeds City Museum, Millennium Square, Leeds, LS2 8BH – Visit Now

Housed in the impressive former Mechanics’ Institute building, Leeds City Museum is the perfect place to while away an afternoon with the family. Its interactive exhibits span 540 million years of discovery, and tell the story of Leeds from prehistory to the modern day.

Don’t miss the ‘man-eating’ Leeds Tiger, the 3,000-year-old Leeds Mummy (the only one of three mummies held at the museum to survive the 1941 WWII bombing raids) or the many other weird and wonderful artefacts that make up this impressive collection.
