When in UK: Royal Armouries in Leeds

The British weather is very well known for being unpredictable so when it rained, our Aunt and Uncle took us to the Royal Armouries in Leeds.

This housed all their armors used in war and it’s an interactive museum

I spent most of the time gawking at this museum. It’s amazing how they were able to preserve  the armors that were used before. My Aunt told me that this museum used to be in London but they moved it to Leeds and the best part is… admission is FREE!

They also have presentations inside, like this one. I think this was during a class field trip.

I love the following animal replicas:

Leeds is actually almost an hour drive from Harrogate. We didn’t get to roam around the place outside because it was raining. This is the view from the inside of the building, overlooking the canal on the other side.
