The newest things in the store

Family workshop.

Family workshop.

 

It’s not old enough yet, so what’s it doing in a museum? We aim to debunk the myth that museums are just where we collect “old stuff”, taking this opportunity to take a look at some of the youngest, most contemporary and most surprising additions to Leeds Museum’s Collections.

Price:   Free
