It you like old cars and trams then this is the place for you. The old gaming machines were the most interesting part.

Very good, staff helpful and friendly. Very interactive and hands on. Our three year old loves it, going on an adventure in the old buses and trams. Free entry, nice gardens for picnic an added bonus. Well worth a visit.

Quite small but excellent museum with lots of vehicle exhibits of all types, cars, lorries, motorbikes etc etc. When we were there some live folk music was being performed with the audience joining in and obviously having a good time. Well worth a visit, free but we left a donation.

Loved this place with old streets, shops, cars and bikes. Lovely to look around and loads to see. Lots of museums nearby so no excuse to miss any and all free but donations welcome. Lots of friendly staff to help with any questions too.

Had an excellent afternoon in this wonderful museum.There is such a wealth of exhibits showing many forms of transport, all beautifully displayed. I was particularly impressed by the display of horse drawn vehicles, and the mammoth collection of bicycles.

Such an awful lot to see and do! Fun, interesting and extremely well set out. It was only meant to be a small part of our day but spent most of the morning there. Congratulations to Hull Council for making Free Admission too- we saw a few school visits there and pupils really enjoying the experience. The area outside is... More

It is hard to believe that this museum is free to enter! There are many places that show old buses, trams, railway equipment and cars, and this place does that all quite well, but its display of horse-drawn vehicles, particularly coaches and private carriages, was especially fascinating. Essential to visit for anyone with even a passing interest in transport.
