Royal Armouries Museum Leeds

Our Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds is packed with over 8,000 amazing objects, displayed across 5 stunning galleries and the magnificent Hall of Steel.

What’s more history is brought to life in the galleries by warriors, swordsmen and soldiers from across time in an action-packed daily programme of live combat demonstrations, talks, tours and performances.
