Museum objects on tour!

All of the nine Leeds Museum & Galleries sites can bring objects to you. Museum staff regularly take artefacts out to day centres, nursing homes and community groups. They can usually be handled and spark discussion and sharing memories. 

Comments from people we have visited:

“The ‘By the Silver Sea’ book reminds me of my books when I was young.”

“The inkwell as well is very sweet – useful too and beautifully made.”

“The sliver trinket box was my favourite. I thought the work on an object so small was amazing.”
