Plan your summer days out in Leeds during the school holidays with us!

This summer we’re asking ‘what is a museum?’

Is it a building with old objects?

Or an adventure playground with rope swings and wildlife?

Is it something for a rainy day?

Or a place to visit every day for free!

Whatever a museum is to you, we want to you enjoy your summer holidays in Leeds with us. We have indoor and outdoor fun planned across our nine museums and galleries, with new exhibitions, crafts and activities for families, talks and workshops for adults, and plenty of space to relax.

Find out what’s on in Leeds this summer and plan your next day out.
