Kirkstall’s Abbey House Museum will be decorating their authentic Victorian streets for the half-term, with Halloween activities taking place daily from today until October 28 at 10am–12pm and 2–4pm.

Visitors can whip up some magic potions in Silly Science, or turn detective and solve a murder mystery.

Over the road, Kirkstall Abbey will also be decorated with a scarecrow trail, with scarecrows dotted all over the ruins for youngsters to find.

And Leeds Industrial Museum at Armley Mills will be holding a Halloween family fun day on October 30 from 1–4pm.

The day will include crafts, face painting and story-telling. Taking part is free but usual admission applies.

Councillor Brian Selby, Leeds City Council’s lead member for museums and galleries said:

“Halloween is always a fun and exciting time at our museums and galleries sites, when can dress up in their best costumes and explore some of the city’s most historic locations in a whole new way.”
