The Thackray Museum, Leeds

The award-winning Thackray Museum is one of the UK’s leading museums, telling the story of medicine and explaining how advances in medicine have changed our lives.
The museum is a fantastic day out, transporting you into a living experience of health and medicine, past, present and future. It’s an inspiring visit for families, children and groups of all ages with plenty of fun and interaction.

One of the most popular activities for visitors is taking a walk down a back street of Victorian Leeds, complete with authentic sights, sounds and smells. There’s the opportunity to follow the life of a Victorian character in “Living Health” where you can follow the lives, ailments and treatments of eight Victorian characters – you make the choices that determine their survival, amongst the rats, fleas and bedbugs!
