Royal Armories, Leeds

This huge museum tells the story of weapons throughout the ages with some truly fascinating exhibits. You could easily spend a whole day in here, but it’s easy to dip in and see some of the big-ticket items, such as an armored elephant, if you haven’t got much time.

Owned by the University of Oxford, this is the first university museum in the world. It’s also the world’s oldest public museum and houses artifacts from ancient societies around the world.

Surgeons’ Hall Museums, Edinburgh

Take a look into the history of surgery at this award-winning museum, not for the squeamish. The old tooth extraction methods will make you shiver for one.

The Duxford site of the Imperial War Museum is home to a huge collection of historic planes, including the Spitfire, a famous WWII fighter that kept the Nazis at bay during the Battle of Britain.

National Football Museum, Manchester

Soccer fans will adore this huge new museum, home to the English football hall of fame. Take a look at trophies, classic kits and other memorabilia and test your skills on the interactive exhibits.
