The museum is home to the national collection of arms and armour, and displays over 8,500 objects throughout its six themed galleries: War, Tournament, Oriental, Self-Defence, Hunting, and Peace.
There is also the impressive Hall of Steel and the outside Tiltyard where live shows take place.
The Royal Armouries Museum is located at Leeds Dock, only a short distance from the centre of Leeds, West Yorkshire.
What we do
Royal Armouries is the United Kingdom’s national museum of arms and armour, including artillery.
As a museum we have a duty of care for our objects: a duty to keep them, study them and increase our knowledge of them, so that this knowledge can be passed to future generations along with the objects themselves.
This knowledge can also be shared with others who also collect arms and armour. We are actively involved with, and support, a number of groups committed to the study of the subject and its practical applications. We offer an enquiry service for both the public and the commercial world alike, and have often acted as consultants on a number of film and television projects.
