Maybe I just aren't into boats but I found it very old fashioned and dreary. If you like ships then it might appeal but otherwise nothing engaging or interesting. I can't imagine children enjoying itMore

Excellent museum to visit, has visiting exhibitions too. Set in a grand old building in the city centre, with very informative and interesting exhibitions. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. Excellent small gift shop too. It’s a must visit if you go to Hull.More

Kids were bored quite quickly. Not much interactive things to do, just looking at things in glass cases. Lots of history to be seen but more for older people I’d say. No parking around the museum.More

Fascinating museum, lots about the whaling past which makes for uncomfortable viewing but also lots about the maritime heritage and an especially interesting exhibition about a passenger ferry commandeered for the Falklands conflict.

Follow P signs then walk. There's nowhere right at the doorstep as it's in the town centre. We found a multi-storey by the marina.
