  • I was passing through the area so stopped off. Very little to see and a very small museum. A few people inside using the cafe facilities. Its free so if you fancy a quick visit, then this might be for...  more »
  • Goole isn't the first place I'd think of to visit, but the Waterways Museum is worth a ride out to. It's reasonably easy to find; there's signage as soon as you head toward the docks area with the mus...  more »

  • While the work that has gone into this museum is terrific, it is not a place where you can expect to spent a whole day. Children will be entertained for only a short time but there is a good hours worth of reading for the adults. HOWEVER, we did visit on a day when the boat trips were not operating and these would make a visit to The Waterways Museum much more fun for everyone. ALSO, there is an interesting adjacent nature trail available for able-bodied visitors to enjoy during suitable weather. Unfortunately, being disabled, we were unable to explore this feature.
  • So much information contained in a relatively compact space. Lots of detail simply told. Great for kids. The cruise around Goole docks on their tug Wheldale is so well worth it. Very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable staff too.
  • It was OK for free but there are other free museums not that far away that are much better. Wouldn't be happy if I'd payed
  • What a brilliant charity. A real hidden gem.
  • A really fantastic way to look at the waterways as they once were and also as they are. For children a must. The only complaint. would be the coffee in the cafe. Staff bril. And can't do enough to help. Don't miss on their trips on the water around the basin .. Give them %99.99
