Lots to see with a wide selection of things on display from bikes to caridges. Free to visit with donation boxes throughout and there are quite a few other museums all in the same area. I would recommend for a wet day visit with kids

Latest of several visits to this excellent free museum in Hull’s Old Town. Helpful staff and a good variety of exhibits plus a few interactive things for children make it a good choice.

This has a number of locally relevant exhibits and whilst not a huge collection is well laid out. It is ideal for children and is close to a number of other worthwhile places to visit. Great area of the city

There is a multi storey car park next to the Magistrates Court which is cheaper than the local Council ones. There is also plenty of on street car parking closer if you're only staying a short while.
