Sharing essential human stories with the world

At Hull Museums, we’re proud to shine a light on human stories through diverse art and heritage collections across eight unique venues. But we can’t do this without you.

Thanks to the generous support of our local council and communities, we’re able to:

  • keep our museums and gallery FREE for everyone to enjoy
  • bring world-class collections and exhibitions to the people of Hull and beyond
  • celebrate and conserve the amazing art, culture and heritage of Hull
  • preserve and maintain our historic buildings for years to come
  • support our local and regional communities through education, events and engagement

There are lots of ways you can support us. Whatever you decide, your contributions make a big difference.
