Leeds Education

The Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds is a great place to study history. There are over 8,000 objects on display in six fascinating galleries.

What’s more, the galleries are brought to life by warriors, swordsmen and soldiers from across time every single day with a lively, free programme of talks, tours, demonstrations and performances.

Our museum education team has designed a range of taught workshops that will further enhance your visit to the museum.

The last cast-iron British smoothbore cannon – the 68 pounders – were the same calibre (8 inches) as the heaviest guns of King Henry VIII three hundred years earlier. Their performance was probably not very different either!
