This is an excellent little museum in Hull's old town. Shops, trams, a carriage ride experience (bumpy), buses and old streets. When we took my son as a toddler he cried when we left. Now he's a teenager, he still loves it.

Fabulous for kids and I enjoyed because I'm interested in old forms of transport. Spent two hours there and it was very informative. Plenty of people from different places there whilst I was there.

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