  • Really good museum . The exhibits were presented well with lots of information boards. There is a particularly good area about people growing up in Hull in post 2nd world war times. There is a lift . It's free but only open 2nd and 4th Saturday of month for afternoon only . Very busy with all ages . Children loved the downstairs hands on gallery .
  • Lovely museum shame it isn't open more often!
  • Not a day trip, but quietly interesting.
  • Very nice for a small museum
  • Former school class is fun, children can do all sorts of things and dress up. Further history of life in Hull over the centuries. Accessible free of charge.
