Looking for a fun and different day out? Housed in one of the most impressive buildings in Leeds, Thackray Medical Museum is a fascinating day out for all the family. Located in the old Leeds Union Workhouse, we will take you on a journey of discovery to explore the incredible world of medicine. Take a trip back to 1842 to take a walk down the dirty streets of Victorian Leeds. Surrounded by the smells and sounds of Victorian life you will follow the lives of the characters that live amongst the rats and bedbugs. Enter an operating theatre in 1842 and experience first-hand the horror of Victorian surgery or explore your body and how it works in the interactive Life Zone Gallery.
With fun activities every school holiday, there is always something new to discover.
Just a few minutes from Leeds city centre. On-site parking and on all major bus routes.
