  • This is an amazing inside look into Hulls shipping history. Take a look when you are in the city centre and learn something for free in this great old building.  more »
  • Lots of interesting information throughout, especially the history of whaling. The building is full of artefacts. A particularly poignant cabinet holds the memorial book of lives lost at sea. There is a small area where children can dress up. Overall a very well run museum
  • A great place to learn the maritime history of hull and presented in a very attractive ways.. miniature ships are elegant. Above all... Entrance is free...
  • Remarkably good museum, packed with model ships and general maritime kit. A really interesting place. I was amazed at how good this is, having just come over from the appalling art gallery over the road. Very impressed.
  • one of the places you must visit while you are in Hull. It is located just within the city centre. and situated in a very nice building. Free entry and it’s pack of information about the maritime history. Definitely recommended for everyone.
  • Visited with 4&8 year old and whilst there is a lot here, not much was interactive and they weren’t that interested.  If you’re into maritime history it’s worth a visit. If not, it’s worth a quick look round as it’s in the centre of the city anyway.
