Leicester Museum and Art Gallery originated in 1849 when the Literary and Philosophical Society formally presented to the town its various collections, which have grown and developed over the last 160 years into one of the premier museums in the region. On the ground floor of the museum, visitors can enjoy the Arts and Crafts Gallery. The first floor galleries include Picasso Ceramics: The Attenborough Collection and Leicester's internationally renowned German Expressionist collection. The museum also offers a range of events from curator's talks to lunchtime concerts.
