Work began in autumn 2005 on an ambitious project to turn Leeds’ old Civic Theatre into an exciting new museum in the heart of Leeds. The project was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Leeds City Council and Yorkshire Forward and has transformed the Grade II-listed Civic Institute building into a state-of-the-art museum.
Car Park:  Metered street parking is available nearby.  Woodhouse Moor for daytime parking and the car park in 'The Light' provides 24 hour car parking.
