Leeds Discovery Centre
From elephant skulls to a medieval log boat, mummy bandages and meteorites, the Discovery Centre offers a unique opportunity for hands-on exploration into the natural world, human history and ingenuity.
Leeds Discovery Centre is a state-of-the-art museum storage facility, storing and protecting over one million fascinating objects. The museum objects are stored in the best conditions to preserve them. This is made possible by their modern facilities including a storage area equipped with giant shelves on wheels to maximise floor space, a specialist conservation studio and a research room.
