Great range of paintings on view and informative staff who also took our picture. The shop also has some nice Beryl Cook cards.

The Hull Maritime Museum building is the nicest thing to see to be honest. It is quite small, not very interesting, descriptions are written in a boring way. Despite all that, it has some special atmosphere inside... It is hard to describe but it was very quite and with some special character of the city. All in all, I think I would go there again.

This museum is a great way to get a glimpse of Hull's shipping/fishing past. It's free, which is awesome! They also had a polar bear on display as well as several whale skeletons (Hull had a vibrant whaling past). If you enjoy nice outings or are just staying in Hull for a day or more this is a great place to visit.

It's not a bad place to visit but only if it's somthing if you have an interest in. But it is free and it's usually nice and quite.

This exhibition of Beryl's paintings was a joy, particularly that so many were seen together but in a way that they could be fully enjoyed.
