Such a great, interactive place in Hull that helps to present the location in which it is found. It is in Old Town Hull, everyone that visits Hull should visit here to expand their knowledge and fascination of Hull and the surrounding area. Very close to the centre of Hull with only a five minute walk. The walk present the history and culture of this city. Hands on history museum is a go to place for any family in Hull or visiting Hull. It is further surrounded by pubs, restaurants and cafes, all with good food so it easy to fit into daily plans. Hull offers a variety of leisure activities for families with museums, art galleries, many place to wine and dine, cinemas, bowling, clothes shops and whatever you need. Should definitely visit this place. I have visited this with my family and children for the last 16 years and they’re still excited to go back an interact. Lovely place
Very good and the Staff were friendly
A small museum that shows how we once got educated and how we lived. Then move on to the Egyptians.
This is the place to go with children touch friendly, dress up clothes, do your own punch and Judy show have a go on the rocking horse then on on upstairs to see the mummy and see what it was like for your grandparents if you love history you will love this place
