Leeds museum building


We are making some exciting changes in the War Gallery on the Second Floor. This will mean that some areas will need to be closed whilst we install our new ‘Hundred Years’ War’ display between the 11th July and the 6th August. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. If there is something special that you would like to see in the meantime, please get in touch and we’ll do our best to arrange this.

The Royal Armouries Museum is located at Leeds Dock, which is only a short distance from the centre of Leeds, West Yorkshire. It is home to the national collection of arms and armour.

Explore arms and armour from across the world and throughout time in our six themed galleries. Learn more about the objects, their uses, and the people behind them in our entertaining daily talks.

Admission is free

The Royal Armouries Museum should not be confused with Royal Armouries International plc, the private sector corporate hospitality business.

Opening times

Open daily 10am – 5pm
Last admission 4.30pm

Closed 24, 25 and 26 December


Admission is free
