This is part of a little museum complex I stumbled into through going on a walk with a locally based relative. This museum was an unexpected find with some very unusual artefacts e.g. prehistoric boats found locally. However the real highlight for me was the Roos Carr figures from the Bronze age. I had no idea anything like this existed... More

One of the best museums outside of London in the UK. Great exhibits of life from the iron age to the 19th century. Good for people of all ages.

A very interesting museum, with lots of things for kids to see and touch. My grandson loved the life size model of the woolly Mammoth; in fact we had difficulty getting any further, { he is only three though}. The journey takes you through time from Ichthyosaur Fossil million years ago to all the history of the East Riding including... More

A great museum, plenty to see. Good for all the family and well worth a visit. Our 9 year old daughter said she really enjoyed it here.

Situated in the museum quarter next to the transport museum. Had a quick look around. The museum is an archaelogical and local history museum which has some interesting artifacts.

There are several museums within a few metres of each other covering different themes and the Hull & East Riding is one these. It concentrates on the early history of the area and has some really good Anglo-Saxon and Viking materials, a big collection of Roman Mosaics and a stunning early boat dragged out of the Humber. The museum is... More

What a great little museum. Small enough to spend an hour or so seeing pretty much everything (or if you have more patient/older children you could spend longer easily!!) Very well thought out displays, the woolly mammoth is amazing! Stone Age villages, romans, Celtic and Anglo Saxon displays. Interactive bits for children, friendly staff. So impressive, and it's free!!

I visited this museum very often as a child and I don't think I really appreciated how amazing this museum is. Through the eyes of an adult I really saw it in a new light and true depth of information & displays are amazing. However there was also a nice nostalgic feel bringing back some childhood memories of going there... More
