We hadn't intended to visit but popped in due to the weather and were really impressed. The musuem deals with issues that are now sensitive such as whaling in a very balanced manner. There is plenty for an interesting hour at least.

Maybe I just aren't into boats but I found it very old fashioned and dreary. If you like ships then it might appeal but otherwise nothing engaging or interesting. I can't imagine children enjoying it

Excellent museum to visit, has visiting exhibitions too. Set in a grand old building in the city centre, with very informative and interesting exhibitions. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. Excellent small gift shop too. It’s a must visit if you go to Hull.

Kids were bored quite quickly. Not much interactive things to do, just looking at things in glass cases. Lots of history to be seen but more for older people I’d say. No parking around the museum.

Fascinating museum, lots about the whaling past which makes for uncomfortable viewing but also lots about the maritime heritage and an especially interesting exhibition about a passenger ferry commandeered for the Falklands conflict.

Follow P signs then walk. There's nowhere right at the doorstep as it's in the town centre. We found a multi-storey by the marina.

Hi Peter... I've never seen pets in the museum. There are priceless artefacts that could suffer irreparable damage especially if a large very unruly dog misbehaved and therefore i would imagine the policy will be to admit... More
