I recently visited the Thackray museum. It describes the history of medicine and Leeds and has many areas you can explore. I'd definitely recommend going! The best feature was the free-to-explore life like street where you can find more about your chosen character and what their life was like in the 1800's. You then travel into the medicine room to find out of your character can afford the medicine that will cure them. I really recommend it but maybe it is a little to gruesome for children, especially, the room that shows you what happens to 11 year old annie whose leg gets caught in a mill machine (they saw it off with no anaesthetic).
