Brave visitors had the chance to get involved with scary storytelling, costume competitions, face-painting, apple bobbing, arts and crafts and a murder mystery, as well as a pop-up science station.

The historic museum is housed in what was once the world’s largest woollen mill and is nestled just next to the River Aire.

It tells the story of the city’s rich industrial past, from manufacturing textiles and clothing to printing, engineering and locomotives, which Leeds became famous for around the world.​

Steve Whetstone works as the visitor assistant at the museum.
