History Of Leeds City Museum

When the Leeds Philosophical and Literary society members decided that Leeds was worthy of its museum back in 1819, they could have had no idea how popular it would be today. It took them two years to open to the public at the original site on Park Row, and they kept control of the museum for 100 years before the city council took it over in 1921. Everything ran smoothly until the bombing in WWII damaged much of the exhibits and original building, but the board kept the museum open as it improved local morale.

Due to a lack of funding, it was decided that the museum would close in 1965 and viewing of the remaining exhibits would be by appointment only – an arrangement that remained until lottery funding in 2004 led to the refit of the old Leeds Institute building as the Leeds City Museum in 2005.

Leeds city museum’s new home

When Cuthbert Brodrick completed the building that now houses Leeds city museum in 1862, its purpose was to be the home for the Leeds Institute – an organisation to educate Leeds industrial workforce – and be a lecture venue.

When you look at the building today, you can see Brodrick’s bold design and recognise the similarities with his other creations: Leeds Town Hall and The Corn Exchange – which goes to show what a great decision it was for Leeds council to turn this building into a museum!
