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

Four adults and two grandchildren 5 & 10 years old. Exceptional value as it was free to enter !! Kept everybody interested for a couple of hours including the children. Highly recommended.

Have visited many museums of this nature, but this one is one of the better ones. Free entry and nicely laid out. You will find it in Hull Old Town which is a very interesting place in its own right. Recommended.

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.

I think you can walk over the bridge and get to it from the deep. Probably 5-10 mins?
