Established in 1849, Leicester's original museum has collections spanning art history and the natural world.
Located in the historic New Walk area of the city, the museum mounts exhibitions of works from the permanent collections and touring shows from national museums and ARTIST ROOMS.
The museum originated in 1849 when the Literary and Philosophical Society formally presented its various collections to the town.
Art dealer Anthony d'Offay and Lord and Sir David Attenborough have said that they were inspired to pursue their love of art and natural history as a result of regularly visiting the museum in their formative years.
