Leeds Discovery Centre

Explore Leeds Discovery centre, our state-of-the-art museum storage facility, where we care for 1.2 million objects.

From elephant skulls to a medieval log boat, mummy bandages and meteorites, the Discovery Centre offers a unique opportunity for hands-on exploration into the natural world, human history and ingenuity. Come and explore behind the scenes of our Museum and discover the Leeds collections up close and personal.

Researchers are very welcome to enquire about objects, conservation and handling items with our curatorial team. If you have an object at home that you'd like to know more about we can try to help you, otherwise we can organise handling sessions with students and groups.

We work with a range of community groups and we're happy to book a tour or organise a session to fit your groups requirements.

Please pop us an email or call us to book a free visit and find out more.
