Museums Quarter

Explore the old warehouses and pubs to understand the history of East Yorkshire through the eclectic array of riverside museums.

The Museums Quarter is Hull’s primary cultural hub, where a range of fascinating exhibitions and collections lie within historic buildings flanking the River Hull. The museums of this old town district shed light on natural history, the evolution of transportation and the abolition of the slave trade, among other intriguing topics. Check out all of the museums to build up your knowledge about the East Yorkshire region and the rest of the world. 

Visit the impressive Hull and East Riding Museum for exhibits on more than 200 million years of natural history. Capture photos of the slick, glassy façade entwined with green panels. Among the highlights are the life-sized woolly mammoth model and the only dinosaur bones excavated in East Yorkshire. 

Experience nostalgia at the Streetlife Museum of Transport. Enter the double-decker tram and inspect the implements of the driver’s area. The site also has an elegant horse-drawn carriage and a set of enchanting landscape gardens. 

For a change of scenery, climb aboard the Arctic Corsair boat that is moored in the River Hull. This deep-sea trawler has an array of exhibits on the fishing industry of Hull. Learn about a leading figure in the campaign against slavery in the Wilberforce House Museum. Find out about West African customs and see personal belongings of William Wilberforce. 

Visit the shops and restaurants hidden inside old warehouses in this quaint area. Stroll down narrow lanes and enjoy a few drinks in a pub. Entrance to all of the museums in the district is free, although their opening times vary.  

Find the Museums Quarter on the western bank of the River Hull in the central part of the city. Once you arrive at the Hull railway station, walk east for 15 minutes to reach the district and continue exploring it on foot. See some of the nearby sights, such as the Hull Maritime Museum, Holy Trinity Church and The Deep aquarium.
