It's free which is a bonus, but what a great place to visit!It's big, there are plenty of displays, with enough, but not too much information. We spent a happy hour wandering around and will definitely go again

Street scenes and a collection of vehicles, trams, cycles, etc. It's very well laid out and put together. Not so good when the large school parties are there.

Excellent museum in the heart of Hull's Old Town which covers the history of transport in the city. There are some really good exhibits and it's packed with interesting artefacts and information.

The people here are very friendly and are willing to answer any questions you might have.

the best part about it is it's entirely free!

Unbelievable that it is free! Great museum with plenty to see and do. All about transport: cars, bikes, carriages, trains, streetcars... Also some themed games (take change with you!) which let you be a child again:) We have really enjoyed a carriage ride symulator and were very happy it only lasted 2 minutes:) Enjoyable experience, worth visiting.

A little bit of everything and it is a chance to get close to the exhibits - these are not hidden behind glass or barriers like in other museums. A well maintained and superb attraction - a "must see". Beautiful gardens with one of the many toads that was a Hull feature years ago, and being so close to The Deep and the William Wilberforce museum it is a must have
