The streetwise museum is very well kept with plenty of things to see and interact with. Enjoyable for both adults and kids and will easily fill a good few hours. Great that all the other museum are also right by within walking dinstance.

We have visited the museum once before and felt it deserved a second look around. It is well maintained and has some fantastic displays. We liked the shop displays as it was fun to recall items we remember as children.

A pleasant journey to the past is the feeling after visiting the museum. Very educational and informative as the young generation lack the level of knowledge required...Is a must for everyone visiting Hull...

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