Come face-to-face with the famous Armley Hippo, elephant skulls and a giant deer at the Leeds Discovery Centre.
Located inside Leeds’ state-of-the-art museum, the Discovery Centre is home to more than one million objects collected since 1819.
With collections of items ranging from mummies to dresses and textiles, visitors can get a hands-on exploration of early human history and culture.
Coun Brian Selby, Leeds City Council’s lead member for museums and galleries, said: “The Leeds Discovery Centre gives history lovers of all ages the chance to explore millions of years of world history and to learn more about everything from textles and world cultures to natural science and geology.
“We are very fortunate to have such a state-of-the-art facility and the centre is a true asset to Leeds.”
