Yet another FREE museum in Hull. A lot of reading in this museum, so probably more suitable for adults. However, very educational for both children and adults alike.

I used to visit this place as a child. I have not been in for years, but rest assured for anyone interested in the slave trade it is a most.
One of the UK best museums, small but there is plenty to see.

Beautiful Building, and lots of information about William Wilberforce. Staff in all museums friendly and helpful, lifts as well as stairs, so everyone can enjoy. All set in a most quaint area of the City, so you get a real sense of being back in time.
