HOMEPAGE for all of Phil and Molly's Pics

16a. Hull (4) The Maritime Museum

Yorkshire Wolds Scenes, East Riding Coast & South Yorkshire - Tourist Information and visitor Attractions from March 2012

The Maritime Museum is in Queen Victoria Square in the heart of Hull, and is housed in what was once the 2nd built Docks Office of the Port of Kingston-Upon-Hull.

It is a free museum and well worth a visit and the staff were most friendly and helpful.

Hull's Maritime Museum has exhibits dating from the Bronze Age to the medieval period of Hull and right up to the 20th century.

However, the main focus of the Maritime Museum is the maritime history of Hull in the 19th century with an emphasis on the fishing industry.
