If your visiting in Hull this free museum is a must . There’s another free museum next to it too . Great for children and you can take a picnic in summer and sit outside with it near the little maze .

A stunning museum which brings back plenty of memories for us -over 50's' as well as providing exhibits of Victorian life...a brilliant day out.

We parked in one of the nearby streets and walked along the river prob less than 5 mins walk. There are meter spaces - not expensive.

yes the museum is approximately 12 or so minutes depending on your Walking spead; you can walk straight through the city centre to arrive at the destination. 🙂
