Leeds Events

To allow for building work and gallery refurbishment the mezzanine level of the War Gallery will be closed 19 May – 4 August.

The tonlet armour and the horned helmet of Henry VIII will not be on display in the Tournament gallery 16 June-29 September as they will be on loan to Leeds Castle for an exhibition.

Charge down to the museum for loads of summer fun. Come rain or shine there’s always something exciting going on.

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