Royal Armouries Museum, Leeds

The Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds is home to Britain's largest collection of arms and armour.

Perched high above the River Aire, the £42.5m building occupies a prime position adjacent to the city's Leeds Dock.

The Museum has five permanent galleries - focusing on War, Hunting, Oriental, Tournament and Self-Defence weaponry - which are arranged over five floors. These galleries consist of 5,000 permanent exhibits. A further 2,500 exhibits are displayed in The Hall of Steel, which is a giant staircase at the eastern end of the building.

In common with the National Media Museum in Bradford, a lot of the exhibits at the Royal Armouries Museum are very dimly lit. The poor light, combined with glare from the display cabinets, made taking photos quite challenging for a newbie like me!

I visited the Royal Armouries Museum on 22nd July 2015. My photos of the Museum are shown below:
