Had a great time here. Educational, great for the kids and easy to find. Just make sure you bring change for the carpark as they can't change it at the desk!
Pay once and visit as many times as you like in the next year. Museum is set up to interest school children and adults and during the holidays has extra events during the week. More informative information for the adults. Our kids are early teens and moaned as we took them, then fully immersed themselves once there, and there are sections that attempt to recreate sight, sounds, and smells of 19th and 20th century Leeds. Lots of static displays also. It takes several hours to get around the museum and seating is available at strategic points. There is a cafe and toilets. Car park can get full and you need to pay to park.
Such an interesting place for a visit. The museum is full of interactive displays that will fascinate all ages. Parts of the museum may be too scary for younger children but can be avoided if necessary. It has a nice cafe and gift shop.
This is a great place to visit if you have any interest in UK social history as well as the way that public health developed over the last couple of centuries. There is a section that is not for the squeamish as it covers amputations and other medical procedures in some detail but you have the option to bypass it! Overall a fascinating walk through medical history.
Rich in history, this museum gives a look back in time of how the medical health was in Victorian era, the medical breakthroughs. Can't help feeling so fortunate we live in today's world which is so medically advanced.
Fantastic museum giving an interactive insight into the history of medicine and the social history of Leeds. The museum is within the old Leeds work house. Fascinating place, well worth a visit.
A museum detailing the history of through the ages, not just about Thackeray and Leeds. The exhibits are aimed at middle to older children level with interactive exhibits and both history of medicine, changing understanding and modern techniques. Good for a school trip or a school holiday day visit.
Extremely underrated museum! Very interesting and well-explained exhibits. Myself and my girlfriend really enjoyed ourselves. It will easily keep you busy for upwards of 3 hours. The main reasons it wasn't quite worthy of 5 stars was that some of the interactive activities need replacing/updating. And there were one or two exhibits that could have been more interactive, instead of just written boards. Fantastic experience though and well-worth your time.
Really supprises Expirence at the Thackeray Medical Museum. As expected from the site, it's a smaller museum - but the displays and dioramas inside more than make up for this. There's also a cafe serving snacks and drinks inside. To look around the whole museum, it'll take about 1 and a half hours. To look at all the displays and read everything; you could easily be inside for 3 hours.
Excellent museum. Probably not for the youngest children, 8 or 9 upwards I would suggest. Café a bit chaotic as they get a lot of NHS staff in from the hospital next door. Car park a bit of a challenge. Take coins for the meter.
An interesting place to visit. Feels dated in places and I don't mean because of the exhibits. A lot of the displays involve your sense of smell but seems like the herbs need replacing.
Slightly gorey but lots of fun. I am a little bit sad that this sort of museum is just being aimed at kids, but I also had a good time here.
I went on a school trip. The workshops were excellent. We didn't have time to see much of the museum except the downstairs interactive part which was very good. They have a lovely little cafe with delicious looking cakes. There is also a gift shop but as with all these places it was pricey
Easy to get to by bus and train. Very informative on both child and adult levels and entertaining. We spent 4 hrs there including lunch in the café. Could have easily spent longer but circumstances meant we had to leave earlier than expected.
Great day out with lots of interactive exhibits. Plus ticket lasts for 1 year. Free car parking.
Amazing experience for all ages. Loved how interactive all the attractions were. Definitely worth a visit!
I visited this museum a while back and it is excellent. Although I have lived in Leeds all my life I had never visited it before and I do question why. It is full of interesting history on both Leeds and medical advances. It gives an excellent overview of illness, pain, disease and medical instruments used in the old and insanitary Leeds and UK. There are often events for kids on throughout the school holidays. There is also an eerie feel to the place, not sure if it's on purpose or the place is haunted but it makes a great day out
Great place can't believe I have not been before. The medical history walk through street is fab great to show kids who have it all what life was like for kids 140 years ago, put some perspective on 😁
