Hull’s rich history comes to life in Hull’s Museums Quarter based in the picturesque cobbled streets of the city’s Old Town. Within this beautiful quiet area of the city on the banks of the River Hull, you’ll find the Hull & East Riding Museum, the Streetlife Museum and Wilberforce House.

The Hull & East Riding Museum displays the history of the area, going back 235 million years in time and coming face to face with a full-size woolly mammoth! A great immersive experience shows what built the local area with displays to engage with all members of the family.

Just next door, the family can hop on board the Streetlife Museum. Experience 200 years of transport and absorb the feel of the 1940s as you walk along a fully staged historic street. You can even take a carriage ride to really enjoy the sights and sounds of the time.

You can also learn about one of Hull’s most prominent sons, William Wilberforce, at his birthplace, Wilberforce House. In this beautiful historic house, you’ll learn about his life and his legacy as an MP who led the abolition of the slave trade.
