  • A very well put together museum! Fascinating exhibits and a very thoughtful modern slavery section. Overall, a place that everyone should definitely go for an education.
  • I went here as I kid and remember enjoying it but the contents have been ripped out and replaced with sign boards telling the history of slavery. This is an important story to tell but I thought they could have kept one or two of the rooms looking as they did when it was a home. I found the part on modern slavery a bit lacking.
  • This museum (free to go in) provides a really good history of slavery, the role of William Wilberforce in its abolition and some explanation about slavery today. It is in his house and it has some interesting audio visuals about his life. It has a very peaceful enclosed garden.
  • The museum has no entrance fee. The information panels were informative. I had previously been to the much larger Slavery museum in Liverpool and the Hull Wilberforce museum is not as well produced. I found no references to slavery in British colonies such as Ireland and Queensland. Many Irish people were taken as slaves to the Caribbean. Many Pacific Islanders were taken as slaves to work on sugar plantations in Queensland.
  • Well organised the exhibition and you could find out the dark history of Black slavery. also, say hello to 3D Sir Willberforce!
