Amazing place. Gives you a full walkthrough of the history of science and scientific breakthroughs. Easily a good 2-3 hours of education. HOWEVER the trip was spoilt by gaggles of little darlings being allowed to run amok through the museum.

Eventually went here with an American friend who has a morbid interest in biology/forensics as I do. I've begged my husband for the 4 years we've now lived in Leeds but it's not his thang! Enjoyed it but the opening hours are too short IMHO....More
