Childrens Play Area Abbey House Museum Kirkstall Leeds

The photo above shows a childrens play area in the Abbey House Museum, Kirkstall, Leeds. The museum contains a nationally important collection of toys and games and is very child friendly.

Abbey House Street Leeds

The photograph above shows a recreated street of around 1880 that can be explored at the Abbey House Museum, Kirkstall, Leeds.

The museum is:
Abbey House Museum
Abbey Road, Kirkstall
Leeds
LS5 3EH

Museum opening times:

Monday closed all day
Tuesday to Friday 10am - 5pm
Saturday 12noon - 5pm
Sunday 10am - 5pm

This is another place where holders of the Leedscard get a 20% discount on the entry charge. The Leeds card is well worth having because holders get in free at both Tropical World, Roundhay Park, Leeds and also Temple Newsam Home Farm and House, Leeds.

So if you like stately houses, piglets or especially meerkats and visit Yorkshire or live here get a Leedscard from Leeds city council and see these and more for free.  I will try to do a feature on the Leeds photo daily of all the places where the Leedscard gets discounts or freebies.
