Café temporary closure

We apologise that the City Museum Café is closed for a little while. The museum remains open during normal opening hours.

Six galleries and a programme of family friendly exhibitions in the heart of Leeds.

The Museum of Figments book launch

Come along to the official launch of this new story by Mister Finch, meet the author and have your book signed. Also witness the opening of the Museum of Figments display and find the magical beings on our Leeds Story gallery for a limited time only.

Mister Finch will also be running two one-day workshops where you can create your own fantastical felt rabbit doll.

200th Birthday exhibition

Leeds Museums & Galleries is 200 years old and we are celebrating with a special exhibition.

We have worked closely with others to explore themes and objects which represent the history of Leeds and our museum service.

What you will see on display is only a surface-level view of our collective history and we hope it provides an insight into where we’ve come from and who we are today.
