Leicester's premier museum has everything from a duckbilled platypus to dinosaurs and German Expressionist art to Egyptian mummies. New Walk Museum and Art Gallery is situated within the historic New Walk area of the city. In 1849 the Literary and Philosophical Society formally presented to the town its various collections, which have grown and developed over the last 150 years into one of the premier collections and museums in the region.
New Walk Museum has been the inspiration for many people including Lord Attenborough and Sir David Attenborough, who pursued their love of art and natural history as a result of spending their formative years as regular visitors to the galleries. Leicester's oldest museum has wide-ranging collections spanning the
natural and cultural world. The museum has a coffee shop, and is also a venue for musical performances and weddings.
