“Good displays, free to visit, ideal for family”
Reviewed 23 August 2013

This is another part of the museum's quarter where a range of free to enter museums are on one site. It has a small gift shop at the entrance and a good range of displays for all ages. No onsite coffee shop, but there is a small café nearby which was worth a visit.

“Great museum”
Reviewed 22 August 2013 via mobile

This is one of Hull's 8 free museums. I only had a short time to look around it but it seems great. I'll definitely head back for a longer visit soon.

“A little gem”
Reviewed 6 August 2013

Tucked away in the museum quarter this is right next to the Streetlife Museum and I would anyone do this one also. There are some lovely mosaics and archeological finds excavated from the East Riding on display.
