Museums and Galleries

Leicester city museums was born in 1849 when we first took responsibility for a collection of objects of scientific and cultural interest from the Leicester Literary and Philosophical Society and opened a permanent museum to show them. Since then our collections have continued to grow in size and significance and we now manage a family of five complimentary museums across Leicester. Together they offer a rich resource for everyone to learn, be inspired and entertained.
