If you are interested in Hull's maritime history it's a must visit. As a casual tourist it's a bit dull. The staff are nice and the place is packed with information but unless you are researching it's about half an hour out of the rainMore

We hadn't intended to visit but popped in due to the weather and were really impressed. The musuem deals with issues that are now sensitive such as whaling in a very balanced manner. There is plenty for an interesting hour at least.More

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

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.
