How to get involved

As a Friend of Leeds City Museums you can take part in as much, or as little, as you wish; from getting involved with lecturing and learning programmes, participating in regular trips to places of interest or simply making friends with people who share your interest.

By joining the Friends of Leeds City Museums, you will be supporting the collections and sites of Leeds Museums and Galleries and helping preserve them for future generations.
