The 3yr old loved it, fantastic day out and all for free, just brilliant. Can't appreciate why anyone would score less than 5 star considering it's free. Loads of stuff to see, better than many paid museums.

Hi, It's a 10 minute walk into the centre of Leeds. If the river isn't too high there is also a free water taxi that leaves from outside the museum and takes you to the train station which is directly in the centre. Hope... More
