School Holidays with Leeds Museums & Galleries

Join us for a whole host of family fun this February Half Term.

Abbey House Museum is hosting events inspired by the Leeds Year of Reading. There’s silly science from the wonderful world of Roald Dahl and murky Treasure Island themed murder mysteries.

Leeds Industrial Museum is hosting its daily mystery matinees in the Palace Picture House, and there’s coding with programmable Lego from 18-20 February too.

Leeds City Museum has a whole range of sustainable activities inspired by the Fast x Slow Fashion exhibition. Come along and learn all about reusing, recycling and reducing material waste.
