Lose yourselves here for a couple of hours, great place. Free entry. Classic old vehicles and modes of transport, a real trip back in time.

It's a small museum but when you visit Hull you need to visit this museum! It's a bit of an open air museum but now indoors. It's all about history of England.

Fantastic place to visit for all age groups. Well managed, fantastic displays with superb historical information and facts. Wonderful to see so much local history under one roof which can otherwise be taken for granted.

Lots of different "zones" to keep the interest, and ideal for younger members of the family. For older ones, it provides trips down memory lane . . .

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