  • 1. Streetlife Museum
    http://www.hullcc.gov.uk/portal/page?_pageid=221,95647&_dad=portal&_sc...

    Don't let this boring council website put you off. The streetlfe museum offers you a slice of history from the past 50, 100 and 200 years. Adults will find items that lit up their childhoods like Chopper bikes and Raleigh Shoppers. Kids will love the ride in the stage coach. It is all based on the history of Hull, but it could be any city at any time. Built on the banks of the River Hull and next to the preserved trawler Arctic Cosair, Streetlife is a great museum with an added bonus. It is free to get in. Just five minutes walk from Hull's city centre, find it on High Street.

  • 2. Skidby Windmill
    http://www.eastriding.gov.uk/az/face_content_frame_proc?p_ref=APP57&p...

    Skidby Mill lies six miles from Hull city centre and four miles from the Humber Bridge on the A164. It is the only windmill of its type north of the River Humber. At weekends and on other special occasions too, you'll see its great white sails turning in the wind and grinding local corn. Check the website for opening times. A iconic structure for the East Riding of Yorkshire.

  • 3. Hull Martime Museum
    http://www.eazhull.org.uk/summerschool02/towndocks/home.html

    The sea, it made Kingston upon Hull what it is. A celebration of all things nautical can be found in Hull's most accessable museum. Formally the city's Dock Offices, the citys wealth from shipping can be appreciated by the building which houses the colections. The unique three domed building is the centre of Hull. Marvel at the giant whale skelton stretching out across the ceiling and see the detail with which many of the models have been built. Whaling, Timber and Fish were the comodities which came into one of Britian's major ports. Coal, steel and crops from Yorkshire were exported out of the county's leading link with the outside world. It is free to enter.
