  • This is a place that we would recommend to anyone it had us interested all the way round we both enjoyed it but showing our age we remembered some of the things. Will go back. 
  • A great place to spent a couple of hours on a rainy day. Lots of interesting items from the past couple of centuries.

  • I would say this museum is definitely one of Hull's finest, if not THE finest in Hull. There are an incredible number of exhibits, with lots of hands-on opportunities and opportunities to get into old tram cars etc. Not only is there lots of transport on show, but mock shops, stations, railway control boxes, etc. There is a lot to do and see! Great for kids and adults alike.
  • The kids loved this place (aged 13 & 10). It's free and fun. Highly recommended.
  • intresting if you like to know about what it was like 35 or more years ago. there are some good activitys there too like a old arcade and a fake carrige ride.
  • Been coming here for years, brought my daughter here for the first time recently and she loved it. My favourite part was always the tram that you can sit on and she was exactly the same.
  • This place is off the hookity hook. It's like I went back in the tardis and was like hello what? And that carriage ride was the craziest ride of my life alto ain't got nuttin on dis man
