On the ground floor of the museum, visitors can enjoy galleries including Dinosaurs, Wild Space, The Den gallery for the under 5s, the Victorian art gallery, Arts and Crafts gallery, Picasso Ceramics: The Attenborough Collection and modern and contemporary art displays. The first floor galleries include Life and Death in Ancient Egypt, World Arts and Leicester's internationally renowned collection of German Expressionism.
