Access information

We aim to provide a friendly, accessible environment for all our visitors and the widest possible access to our buildings, exhibitions and collections.

Carers

Entry to Leeds Industrial Museum is free of charge for carers.

How to find and enter Leeds Industrial Museum

Situated on the outskirts of Leeds, the museum is approximately 2 miles from Leeds city centre, between the River Aire and the Leeds/Liverpool canal.

Access to the Museum is via Canal Road, off Kirkstall Road where a car park leads to a mostly flat walkway to the museum entrance. There is alternative access via Cardigan Fields on Kirkstall Road. Please note that access from Cardigan Fields is via a footbridge with a steep cobbled path to the main museum entrance.

The entrance door to the museum and shop is an automatic door and has a wide clearing space.

Disabled parking

A disabled parking bay and drop off point is available directly outside the museum entrance. There is additional, but unmarked parking off Canal Road, about 100 yards from the museum entrance.

Accessible toilets

There is an accessible toilet on the upper floor of the museum and another in the locomotives gallery. Facilities in the accessible toilets include emergency alarms and a fire alarm with a flashing light. These toilets are not RADAR key operated.

Baby change

There are baby changing facilities in the accessible toilets on the upper floor of the museum and another in the locomotives gallery.
