  • We went here on Saturday 6 April with out Grand Children... wow! This was a great place, never knew it was here. It was a great museum full of wonderful things. The children made paintings and craft things. There were pizzas that they could make and cooking demonstration. They went the dig and learned about all the medieval site and relics of Hull. We would recommend this place to anybody. Everything is shown in a fantastically professional way and the staff are very helpful and knowledgeable. We will be returning very soon to see all the bits we missed.
  • A free museum in the museum Quarter. Out if the three here, this was my favourite. It was like walking back in time, the exhibits are really well done, and you can spend hours exploring here. On a side note bring some 20p coins with you- you can play some of the old arcade/fair ground games! The museum itself is very interactive, and there's a lot to do! Thoughrely enjoyed it!
  • Great day out with plenty to see. They have a great range of vehicles and trams and their reproduction of vintage shops is fantastic. They also have a wonderful collection of antique cycles, but conventional and not! All in all, very engaging and well worth a visit.
  • Good place for families, admission is free. Lots to see and you can easily spend there a couple of ours. Very good ride in the carriage, made my day. Thank you to all staff.
  • I have visited this museum regularly since i was a little girl myself. I now take my own children they love it, we go to all the special events there like the Victorian Christmas. When there they especially like the vintage buses you can board and the carriage ride. Recently went to the new toddler group that has started there 'Transport tots' on Monday mornings, It was really nice a welcoming group and refreshments available will be back soon.
