  • Worth a visit to see some social history about Hull. Suitable for all ages.
  • please note the restricted opening times! Saturday 12pm-4pm on the second and fourth Saturday of each month
  • 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 .
  • Well worth a visit
  • Lovely museum shame it isn't open more often!
