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. From local history to global treasure, take a walk through the ages in Hull’s Old Town. There’s so much history to get your hands on in our museum. Uncover the Story of Hull. See what life was like in Victorian times. And come face to face with a 2,600-year-old mummy! Where else can you hop from locally-made textiles to King Tutankhamun’s treasures? Find us in the old Grammar School where Hull’s famous abolitionist William Wilberforce once studied.
