Unfortunately half of the museum is currently closed for refurbishment, however the downstairs is still excellent and considering it it free entry it is still well worth visiting. The cafe is also good for a light lunch. The dinosaur exhibits are great, as are the...More

Baring in mind this place only asks for donations it's pretty good. Of course they need updates and it could be better but if you happen to be in the city centre it is worth a visit with the kids. I personally wouldn't go town...More

I have lived in Leicester for 30 years and New Walk museum is such a HUGE disappointment. When you think about galleries in Nottingham, Sheffield, Birmingham and Liverpool ours doesn't come close.
