From local history to global treasure, take a walk through the ages in Hull’s Old Town
There’s so much history to get your hands on in our museum.
Uncover the Story of Hull. See what life was like in Victorian times. And come face to face with a 2,600-year-old mummy! Where else can you hop from locally-made textiles to King Tutankhamun’s treasures?
Find us in the old Grammar School where Hull’s famous abolitionist William Wilberforce once studied.
We’re open twice a month, on the second and fourth Saturday.
Last admission: 15 minutes before closing time.
We’re closed between 24–28 December and on 1 January.
