Trip Planner: Europe / UK / England / Yorkshire / East Riding of Yorkshire / Kingston-upon-Hull / Hull & East Riding Museum
The Hull and East Riding Museum is located in the Museums Quarter of the Old Town in Kingston upon Hull, England. It dates back to 1925 as the Museum of Commerce and Industry in a former Customs House but acquired its present name in 1989 with a major refurbishment and new entrance, with the transport section moving to a separate museum. It displays items from prehistoric to medieval in the area, many of them in life-size tableaux or reconstructions of rooms and buildings.Plan to visit Hull & East Riding Museum during your Kingston-upon-Hull vacation using our convenient Kingston-upon-Hull route planner.

Another great free museum in Hull. This one is a hidden gem, right next to the street life museum and Wilberforce museum. There is a lot of history here and probably has the oldest and most... more »

Incredible museum. Small on the outside but huge inside. Staff were fantastic and there was so much to see and do. Kept 5 and 2 year old really entertained. Some bits were a little dark and could have done with a bit more light to explore but definitely 5 stars of excellent museum. Recommend to anyone who's not been. We would certainly go back.
Only able to spend a short time here, but really interesting place. Lots of different areas depicting various ages of the development of the area. Museum is a lot bigger than it looks from the outside and there are many exhibits. Would like to visit again to see more of this great place.
Wonderful opportunity to visit. Great museum with a unique display of artifacts. Good attention to entertainment and engagement with people.
Good to walk around but in need of modernisation. More interactive displays for the children would help.
Lots to see. Very interesting. Nice to take your time!
