We’re inviting you to get hands on with some of our museum objects and discover what life was like for people living in the past. We’ll be exploring the development of the axe, from the Stone Age to the Bronze Age. You’ll get to handle real archaeological objects, ask our team questions and imagine what life was like in prehistoric times.
The museum is open from 12.00 noon to 4.00 pm every second and fourth Saturday of each month. The Hands on History Museum, in the old Grammar School where William Wilberforce studied, houses the story of Hull and its people. Entry to the museum is free. Hands on History includes a fascinating glimpse into Victorian times, the Story of Hull and also features the Egyptian Gallery. This gallery is home to a genuine 2,600 year old mummy and unique replicas of King Tutankhamen’s treasures.
