Some History Of Abbey House Museum 

Abbey House Museum in Leeds was originally the inner gatehouse for Kirkstall Abbey, a 12th-century Cistercian monastery founded by monks from Fountains Abbey. The museum shows what life was like in Victorian Leeds, with beautifully-recreated street scenes. Step into a 19th-century house, shop, and pub, and see what life was like for 19th-century children in the Childhood Galleries.

Kirkstall Abbey was founded as a daughter house of Fountains Abbey in 1147. Twelve monks and an abbot from Fountains established an abbey at Barnoldswick, near Skipton. After 5 years at Barnoldswick the monks moved to a new site at Kirkstall, on the River Aire.

Kirkstall Abbey lasted until it was suppressed by Henry VIII in 1539. The gatehouse had its arched entrance passage blocked at both ends so that it could be transformed into a residence.

Over the next four centuries, it served as a farmhouse and as the home of the Butler family, who operated the nearby Kirkstall Forge. Abbey House was purchased by Leeds City Council in 1926. The Council opened the house to the public as a museum of bygones and folklore in 1927. In the 1950s three historical streets scenes were added to the museum.

The museum was refurbished and updated in 2001 with a dozen new street scenes, recreating life in Leeds around 1880. Visitors can now stroll along accurately recreated Victorian streets and step inside shops, pubs, and houses.

Abbey House Museum is both a historic house and a museum rolled into one. One feature is the De Lacy Room in the south wing. Initially used as a stable and hay loft, this room was a library by 1870 and a dining room by 1902. The De Lacy Room has a beautiful plasterwork ceiling installed by Colonel T Walter Harding, who lived here from 1890.
