How dinosaurs moved with Professor McNeill Alexander.


Welcome to Café Scientifique at Leeds City Museum!

Held on Sunday mornings once a month in the café at Leeds City Museum, for the price of a cup of tea or coffee (and perhaps a slice of cake), anyone can listen to an informal talk on the latest ideas in science and technology.

Café Scientifique at Leeds City Museum started in early 2011, following in the footsteps of successful Cafés in other parts of Leeds, at Chapel Allerton and Headingley.

Following a brief introduction, a local scientist/expert talks for between 40 minutes and an hour, during and after which attendees may ask questions and express views.

•Held from 11.30am until about 1pm
•Suitable for ages 8 to 108
•Totally free to attend! Tasty snacks and drinks are available to purchase in the café (which is open from 11.00am)

Price:   Free

Contact details:   Please contact the museum direct if you have any queries.
