    Fab morning at the museum!
    Really enjoyable morning at the museum. Great for all ages. Well laid out with different experiences from transport and shops through different eras. Would recommend and great that it’s free - bonus when looking for something to do with children. Thank you :)

    Historic Hull Transport
    This is located in a fantastic old area of Hull by the river, well worth walking to it. Not the biggest museum but combined with the others in the area a really good day out. Some interactive bits such as the carriage ride to amuse the younger visitor!

    Amazing day at an incredible museum
    What an incredible day. We took two of our grandchildren…ages 9 and 11…and we all loved it. The staff were very friendly and the displays were amazing. Definitely intend taking the other grandchildren soon. History came alive and we thank everyone at the museum for that. The audios attached to some of the scenes were good…..and having the opportunity to sit inside and experience a journey in a stagecoach was fun for all of us. The kids haven’t stopped talking about it so it’s definitely a winner. Thanks again to all the staff. Not to be missed if you get a chance to go.

    Proper little gem
    What a fantastic place, I'm relatively local to the area and had no idea it existed. We spent a couple of hours looking round, fabulous exhibitions and very well set out. Lovely gardens if you want to eat your dinner. Friendly helpful staff.

    Interesting
    Firstly the museum is free which always helps of course they have a box for voluntary donations. There is a good array of vintage vehicles and displays including trams buses and even shopfronts and the famous white telephone boxes hull is famous for. The museum is about 15-20 walk from the main shopping area (it's right by the river) There is a small gift shop and I would definitely go back next time I'm in hull.

A super museum for adults and children alike and the whole museum complex including the Wilberforce house and the Archaeological museum would make a great 1/2 day or more out BUT there is NO CAFE. Surely they have missed a trick here. After walking round for 2 hours we were gasping for a sit, a drink and a snack. What is there ? Nothing. We were directed to the cafe over the road which had very rude staff who, when they eventually came to serve us, had coffee and almost nothing to eat. We ended up at Witherspoons which was fine and not far away but hardly the point. I have never visited a museum before that did not have a cafe.

Fantastic museum if you are into transport and seeing/reading about means of transport from the past. Helpful and friendly staff. There's even a simulator ride amongst the old carriages. Great laugh

As I was born in Hull and left around 60 years ago I can remember what the High Street used to look like and it has changed almost beyond recognition, I recall visiting the original Transport Museum many times prior to this lovely place being opened, I only wish time would have allowed a longer visit but if we return again this will be top of our list.
